Dad’s Egg Coffee
posted on July 25, 2017
My father, a WWII veteran, Navy sailor, and dedicated husband and father, had his own way of doing things. He helped my mom around the house, took us for walks and played fun games and jokes with us (“Is that a banana or is that your nose”, or taping a string to a dollar bill and pulling the string from his armchair when we went to grab it). He’d make the kids fun hats out of his morning newspaper and he was always calm and lots of fun. He had his coffee on the dot every morning at 5am (he set the alarm even after he retired). Sometimes he’d crack a raw egg into his cup of black coffee in the morning. Said it was protein to start off the day.
