Father of Daughters

"They thought the tea was the least they could do."

3.2 billion men in the world. She picks him.

I hear he had a great pitching arm.

When he was 19, sure. 
She dumped a Rhodes scholar for this guy.

Zoey left Charlie for the Frog. 

Ellie and the guitar player with the purple van. 

My children choose morons. Every one.

They say daughters look for their fathers.

You know, 15 years ago, we took a trip to Egypt, all five of us, saw the pyramids and Luxor, then headed up into the Sinai. 

We had a guide, a Bedouin man, who called me "Abu el Banat." 

Whenever we'd meet another Bedouin, he'd introduce me as "Abu el Banat." 

The Bedouin would laugh and laugh and then offer me a cup of tea. 

And I'd go and pay them for the tea, and they wouldn't let me. 

"Abu el Banat" means "Father of Daughters.

They thought the tea was the least they could do.
