Thank you twice, Dad

For my fifth birthday my father bought me a fishing rod and took me out for a day of bonding and, of course, fishing. After a couple of hours on the lake I still hadn't caught anything, but Dad told me to keep my chin up and that my time would come. He was right. Towards the end of the day, I caught a medium-sized sunfish. Dad helped me reel the fish in and had me hold it up for pictures.

"Take a deep breath, son" he said, "that's what pussy smells like."

Years later, that tidbit of trivia helped me become the first all-out winner on Who Wants to Be a Millionare.

Vali, don't you have a history of your dad finding embarrassing things about you on the internet?
