I missed Super Dad terribly when he left Texas last May. But since he came and went a few short weeks ago, I miss him even more. Contrary to my typical behavior pattern, I have freely told Super Dad that I miss him. No holding back, no games, no fear; just like my martinis: straight up.
Long ago, Super Dad coined a term for being under my spell; he calls it being "patsyized". So below is a text message exchange from the other day.
Me: Is this what it is like to be patsyized? I miss you too much.
Super Dad: Darling, Patsyized has been around for hundreds of years. It has affected many people especially me. I love you. Being SuperDadized is only a theory. Not in production yet. Miss you baby.
I cannot wait until test and development are over and we move on into full-blown production.
