My dad was a doctor and we kids saw very little of him growing up. We were given the impression that it was because he was doing something more important, saving lives.

That was partly true, but when I confronted dad about it in my 30's, he told me the truth: he was just avoiding my mom, a nagging wife. I still resent not getting to see much of him.

However, I worked at his office one summer as a teenager and got to seem him in a whole different context where he was relaxed, competent and funny. It's a shame that a bad marriage get him from us kids.

Just Curious
