love is still young. my parents are headed to italy for their 30th anniversary. major mazel tov is in order. always makes me question why i am so cynical and bitter about the whole institution.
long story short, my dad, always the jokester, made fun of my mother, betsy, by calling her bootsy, pretending he couldn’t remember or pronounce her name. to him, a reference to bootsy collins was easier and more fun.
today i came across this article and sent it to my parents.
the phil sent back the following response:

Thanks for sending. I’m a Bootsaholic. I’m addicted to all things Boots.
