My Dad was an Awesomely Adorable Perv

Okay, I fully realize that is a weird title. :) But it’s actually more innocent than it appears to be.

I’ve never been one of those people who thinks that parents shouldn’t have sex. I know that my mom is first a woman, then a mom. And while I was young when my dad died, as I grew up I realized that he and mom must have had sex in order for my sister and I to exist–and that never grossed me out. I guess stuff like that just isn’t icky to me.

So, as I’m putting the finishing touches on the new cookbook (due out at the end of October–woo hoo!) my mom brings over a family recipe book for me to nab a few of her best recipes. In the little book was a note from my dad that is at least 32 years old. I totally believe in saving every love note I’ve ever received and apparently my mom believes the same. I’m glad she’s like that because it’s precious to me being able to see my daddy’s handwriting.

Then, I read the note.

My mom giggled and said, “Oh, that’s from your father.”

Ummm…Dad’s name was Buck. Or formally, Charles William. But never George.

My mom said, with a coquettish grin, “…ummm…well…part of him was named George.”

It took me a moment, then I busted out laughing. My dad wrote my mom love notes and signed them with the name of his man-part. Good Lord have mercy!!

I absolutely love that he did that. I love that my mom saved it all these years. And I love that I was able to see it. Bearing witness to his sweetness, love (and perviness) over 3 decades after his passing helps make him real to me again.

Love you Daddy!

  1. So cool :-)

    The other day my mum was telling me that my dad had a lump on his testicle (was nothing serious). Anyway, when she told me, I asked her if she had checked it herself (my dad is nearly 73 and my mum is nearly 68). She said she had but only as a glance. I told her to have a proper fondle and give him a blow job at the same time :-D

    She wasn’t keen on that idea, and I wish I had had a recorder on to film her reaction ;-)

    I think it is great that your dad did that for your mum :-)

  2. I think you are one of those few people that are ok with picturing their parents having sex:) Sorry, but I just cannot do that. I tell myself, “immaculate conception”. I know that is quite dilusional, but it helps. Sweet of your dad to leave that beautiful note:)

  3. What a wonderful note to have saved. I can just picture your mother trying to explain the name George to you. I never got to see real affection between my parents, they were divorced shortly before I was born, but I have two boy who are now adults. The youngest (24) doesn’t want to hear anything about me having a man in my life, the oldest (28) asked me point blank when I ended a relationship a few years back if I had “toys” and went on to explain which ones I should have until I found another man I wanted to be with. I sat there laughing hysterically the whole time. I kept thinking when did the roles reverse here?

    • Kids are so funny! Your boys are like my sister and me. My mom and I can talk about anything sex-related and it doesn’t bug me one bit. I don’t think my sister would enjoy those conversations quite as much. :) I LOVE your son asking you about toys. That made me laugh out loud!! :) What a good boy. :)

      • Yes, I do love my boys. My youngest is getting better. Recently his father and I (still friendly) took a trip to visit him. My son was helping me up the stairs ( i have Muscular Dystrophy) and his father was behind me. At one point his father for some reason decided to “help” by putting his hands on my butt (not sure how he was helping, maybe going to shove me up the stairs?) When all of a sudden our son yells at his father to remove his hands off “his” mom. I’m trying to climb the stairs and laughing the whole time.

  4. Awesomely Adorable Perv totally makes sense now! That’s too funny, aww.

    On a side note, it’s great (unusual) that you were always able to accept the fact that your parents had sex. I had trouble just writing that… ;)

    • See, the title sounded hideously wrong, but once explained… :) I am glad that thinking of my mom having nookie doesn’t bug me. Sexuality is so dang healthy, even for moms and dads. :) I love that you had trouble even typing it. That cracked me up. :)

    • OH. MY. GOD. That may have ruined me!!! I don’t mind thinking of them having sex, but SEEING them would be a whole other thing. I’m quite certain I’d have had a long relationship with a therapist after that! ;)

  5. Awesome post! I grew up with a single mother, she was widowed when I was young. I knew she was having sex with her boyfriends and it never bothered me. She is a human and has needs too. But to this day if you mention mom and sex in the same sentence my brothers (now 41) will get up and leave the room!

    • Good for you to be okay with mom being a woman with needs. I know it can be so hard for us to see our parents like that. It’s just wrong that mom and dad would ever have sex! ;) I totally understand how most people feel that way, it’s just never bothered me for some reason. I think your brother is probably in the majority. :)

  6. It’s great that you are able to see your parents as people–people in love and, aparently lust! What a great story to share. Thanks from bringing a very broad smile to my face this morning! :)

    • Awww…I love the idea of giving you a nice big smile. :) My parents were wonderfully affectionate and I’m so glad. It helped me see that affection is a wonderful thing. As a result, I’m essentially glued to my hubby, but luckily he’s as cuddly as me.

  7. Awesome. What a wonderful memory you now have. Loved this post. I remember my Dad and I having a very awkward conversation about sex lives – in particular, his!! I was 35 and he was 67 at the time and I ended up giving him advice! I am still proud of myself for not running screaming…of course, he had trapped me in the car on a long drive and I couldn’t escape…

    • I love that your dad trapped you in the car! That’s a riot! :) I’ve always been blessed with a mom that would let me talk about sex with her. Not GRAPHIC details, but enough to where if either of us had questions, we felt free to ask. :)

      • I must admit, I now resort to trapping MY kids in the car to talk to them about sex. When they were smaller, it was easy and I’ve always been very open with them, but once the oldest 3 hit teenagehood, it became more difficult. I’ll take my girls (who are 16 and nearly 14) somewhere in the car and I’ll say “OK, 2 minutes on periods and tampons starting now!” I’ll stick to the 2 minutes, get the information across, answer any questions and if they want to talk longer, that’s all good! They have become frighteningly modest and shy about all things sexual, which I’m hoping will pass as they get older!

      • You are a hoot!!! I love that you trap them and then set a time limit for sex talk. That is so cool. I think it is so important for teenagers to have someone responsible, who loves them, to talk about sex stuff with. You are a great mommy!!!

      • Thanks Jodi! I try really hard to do an OK job with the kids. Best fun thing ever is being on a sports team with them (waterpolo). Really gets them talking about all kinds of things!

  8. Wait a minute? My parents had sex! Oh my God! I didn’t know! I thought I was born in the cabbage patch! This post explains a lot – especailly since we never had a cabbage patch…well, apart from twisting my life around, your post was exceptional! Very funny and sweet! Also, I try not to picture my parents having sex. In my view, if I ever want to have sex again in my life it would be best if I keep such images out from my mind. I mean, if you saw my parents you would know what I mean; my father’s short, hairy and sometimes my mother would become confused at the sight of him and cry ‘mouse!’ whilst reaching for the broom – and my mother is as thin as a lamp and looks a lot like one too. The last time I saw her I tapped her on the nose and half expected her eyes to become illuminted. Cheers!

    • Oh my God! You are so funny!!!! Your descriptions of your parents are a riot!!! :) I think most people like to believe they are from a cabbage patch, though I’ve always rather thought that those dolls were HIDEOUS!!! :) Hope you are having a great weekend. :)

    • You are such a doll!!! Thank you!!! It’s a bit of an unusual cookbook, but there are a bunch of awesome recipes. :) If you like to cook, you’ll have a blast making some of the more complicated ones from my hubby. He’s the master chef in this house. And I can’t tell you how much it means that you’d do a review! Thanks so much. :) XOXOXOXO
