My dad is originally from Afghanistan. His nickname for me is “Lala”. He is a HUGE worry wart, but he is so sweet and means well. (Case in point, he types certain words in “code” so I can know for sure that it’s him talking and that someone else hasn’t stolen his phone and is trying to manipulate me, thus the “LoVe”, “DaD”, and “LaLa”.) These conversations take place over BBM…
Dad: LaLa, Please DO NOT place your date of birth even if it is not a complete one on your FACEBOOK and LINKEDIN. If any one knows your date of birth and one other personal info about you, they are dangerous.
Me: Ok relax
Dad: I am not relaxing and you know that.
The next day…
Dad: Hi LaLa. How are you doing? I am still not relaxing.
Me: I’m good. I had a presentation today and it went well. You’re still not relaxing? You need to take a chill pill!
Dad: I DO NOT have a chill pill!
Dad: Change your BD on both FB and LI!
