Looking Out for His Kid

October 2nd, 2013 by Suzanne | Filed under family, hilarity.

My phone rang at work yesterday. When I saw my dad’s number on the screen, I immediately worried. What could cause him to call me in the middle of the work day? It had to be bad news. I braced myself.

“Hello?” I said with trepidation.

“Hi Suz,” my dad said cheerfully. “Nothing’s wrong – don’t worry. I’m calling to let you know that my friend told me that there are no more four letter combinations available for domain names.”

“Oh, OK,” I said. I was not at all sure where this was going, or why it necessitated a call that very second.

“So we looked up the value of your domain name, and it’s worth $44,000!!!”

“Um, I don’t have a four letter domain name,” I noted.

“You don’t?”


“It’s not cuss?”

“No. It’s cussandotherrants, and even if it was cuss, I wouldn’t sell it because then I would have no domain for my blog.” I felt bad crushing his dreams of instant wealth for me.

“Oh, sorry to bother you then,” my dad said.

“It’s OK,” I said. “You are just looking out for me.”

Thanks, Dad. I know you’ve got my back.

    hahaha, kind of makes you wish you did have cuss, doesn’t it?

    A little, but it would just frustrate me – I’d want the money, but not the disruption of changing domains. This way, I don’t have to think about it.

    Wait…What?! (Oh–I was just messaged that I have to re-submit this comment because it was “a bit too short.”)

    Thus, I repeat–wait–WHAT? this time. (I never heard of a comment being too short to submit.)
