He Had Curls and Wore a Superhero Cape

Dad, thanks for the curls. You passed them down to me.
I once cursed them. Oh, how much of a pain they could be. But now I wear them proud.
You wore a cape and had curls! You’ll forever be my hero.

This is such a special picture, Melissa. I do see where you got your curly hair. By the way, the rest of us would give anything for those gorgeous curls! Tell us about the superhero cape – that sounds so intriguing. Your Dad sounds like a truly unique and interesting guy!

Very beautiful picture of a father. A father that every child is proud of. A father who is willing to give everything for their child. Willing to sacrifice for the good of his children. It was a very lovely photo with nice curly hair, Melissa. You really got your hair from him.

We’re the same. I also miss my dad every day. Ever since he died because he was hit by a drunk and motorized man, a lot has changed in our lives, a huge loss that he left us. But we can do nothing but accept and move on with life.

Yes, I agree. Not all superheroes wear capes. Sometimes a curl or straight hair, and sometimes a simple hat.

How special! I think your curls are wonderful. I am glad that you wear them proud now; you should certainly be proud of them.

I think most of us go through childhood stages where we want the opposite to what we have – straight hair instead of curly, curly instead of straight! I’m glad you came to love them and every day when you look in the mirror you will be reminded of your father – although I’m sure you already think of him often! My granddaughter (with me in the avatar) is four now and has beautiful curls like you 🙂

Oh yes, she is adorable, not that I am biased! Shirley Temple curls. My daughter told me how often people compliment when she is out and 18 months ago when I went interstate to look after her when my daughter was in hospital having her little brother, I saw just how many times! Unfortunately, due to covid, we’ve only been able to video chat but I’m so grateful that is available to us 🙂

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
