Another bit of Dad magic for you: When you're stopped at an intersection, if you watch the street lights on the roads perpendicular to yours, as soon as the cross road's light turns red, you can wave your hand and confidently say 'One, two, three, green!' and the light in front of you will magically turn green as if on command.

We ended up training our dog to stay away from the table until we call her for cleanup. The days of diving for raisins / grapes before the dog could get them were terrifying.

This is great. My dad had me convinced that he had a friend who could fly until I was like 7. He went out on the balcony often to "talk to his flying friend Peter". He never let me meet Peter.

Later in life I found out that his flying friend was marijuana and he talked to it by smoking it and that's what he was doing on the balcony 4 or 5 times a day.

My dad had me convinced he was a pirate for a LONG time when I was a kid. He had a scar on his stomach that he would tell me was from when he was in a sword fight (it was from a past surgery), and he had a gold ring with a skull and crossbones on it (it was the ring he got for graduating from medical school) that he would wear all the time.

I thought it was the coolest thing on Earth, and then one day I put two and two together and got a good laugh out of it.

When I was in Kindergarten, my class was “buddied” with an advisory of high school seniors; I’m assuming it was to teach them about caring for children. We had lunch with them and recess periods during their advisory times when the seniors were free to take us to the playground to play.

My designated senior told me he could fly, and to prove it he’d scoop me up from behind and toss me into the air like a baby. I gotta admit he got me good lmao

Could've been growing it themselves or knew some that did. I hope they did, anyways. My husband's Paw grew in after he returned from Korea in the 50s, and word has it that it was some of the best shit people have ever smoked out where he stays. He eventually got busted planting and harvesting alongside the nearby river in the 70s or 80s and did hard time for it.

God, how far we've come from then-- hell, when I was 18 and running some herb for a guy I know that grows, getting caught with so much as a quarter was a felony with jail time, followed by probation if you could get out on parole, and finally, the possession charge that would effectively keep you jobless unless you went into construction or something.

All because of the War on Drugs. And on top of it all, the drugs won the war.

u/KaptainMitch 7d ago

Lol that's probably why they had to smoke 4-5 times a day.

My parents had a similar thing they'd tell me. They'd say they're going to the "little room", which was just a small room outside that wasn't connected to the rest of the inside of the house, and was were my dad stores tools and stuff. I always thought they were just smoking cigarettes.

Only like 2 years ago(I'm 26) I found out and it allllll made sense. It just blows my mind that my parents were able to hide smoking from me for so long. It's not like I didn't know what weed smelled like either.

It's like the "Watch my hands as I pull the end of my thumb off and reattach it!" hand illusion or whatever it's called my grandfather did for me when I was maybe 4 or 5 years old. I can't say my mind was blown or that it seeded the idea in me that force of will can overcome anything.

The fact that I remember it almost 50 years later does stand out to me, though.

Thank you for being a caring man, by the way.

u/persephone11185 8d ago

My grandpa used to do this trick, but he had a twin brother who didn't have a thumb so instead of "putting his thumb back on" he would pretend to drop it and lose it. Later when kids asked him if he had found his thumb he would say yes. But if they actually asked his twin, he would say "nope" and show off his thumbless hand.

I didn't actually know that my great uncle was short a thumb until years after he had passed away due to this ruse. I always thought they were just messing with me about his missing thumb.

You've probably got a few years of him still finding it funny after he figures out it's not magic, at least.

Lol my dad used to do that to me at red lights knowing when the light would turn green by looking at the lights to the side at a 4 way stop; he got me for a good year or two with that one when I was in kindergarten lol ! “Green light go!”

Couple of years ago I put a radio in my car that has gesture control. "This is not the radio station I'm looking for" with a hand wave blew my kids' minds the first time I did it :-)

OP, this is a great fun game but also psychologically rich. Kids starting around this age love anything that is about "losing and regaining" or "gone away and then back close" cycles. Freud has written a whole section about this, and he describes a similar scene where the child of one of his friends has a toy that he keeps throwing and then pulling it back, and the kid keeps saying "fort....da" which in German means "gone...there" ("it's gone...it's there!"). It's known as "the fort-da" process in psychoanalysis. I guess it's a slightly more abstract version of peek-a-boo. Anyway, you've invented a great game on many levels :)

As you should! Have fun with him as long as you can. Those are the memories that will keep you young. If I had access to Jedi powers. There's a %100 chance I'd use then the wrong way. So, to you sir. Live happy and love hard! And never forget the smile on that child's face. It's worth more than all the gold ever. Well...
