I think my Dad is a combination of the two best fictional fathers of all time : To Kill a Mocking Bird's Atticus Finch and Baywatch's Mitch Buchannon.
My Atticus-Dad has the "quiet dignity" thing nailed. He taught me, by example, how to treat everyone with respect He is on a first name basis with the mailman, the barista at the drive-through coffee stand, and the toothless guy who pumps his gas. He gives the best advice and speaks in moral maxims like "only idiots paint using a plastic drop-cloth"
My Mitch-Dad enjoys body surfing and giving informative lectures about sneaker waves - not just to his own children but to anyone playing on a log near the ocean. Maybe it's his affinity for red swim trucks and the chest hair, but Lily and I also think our Dad looks like Mitch Buchannon - which he vehemently denies / is secretly flattered by.
I hope you and yours have the happiest of Father's day weekends!
Does your Dad remind you of any fictional fathers?
