Interview Between Daughter And Father Essay

1182 words - 5 pages

From a Taxi Driver to a Business ManDad and I sat in his office at work on Sep. 20th, 2014 where I was going to interview him. His hair was graying as was his mustache. I thought to myself, is this my old man, is he really in his fifties now, man time sure does go by fast. There's a scar on his nose, from when they cut off half of his face to rebuild it earlier this year after his surgery. Every time I look at him I can't help but thank God a million times for his life and his health. My daddy, my best birthday present ever. My dad has a lot of scars, I call them his battle scars. This really long one on his neck as well. Half of his mouth is tooth less, his lips even thinner after the surgery. Ah daddy, why did you have to smoke. My dad is a handsome man, well every daughter probably thinks that about there daddy, but I know mine is the most handsome. Then there are those red ray ban glasses he wears. I sure do love those glasses.I start with my interview after observing him, he looked tired. "Hey dad?" I say in my usual cheerful tone. "Yes baby?" he replies like usual. I start my interview, asking him a million questions all at once, where he told me to calm down as we have plenty of time. "How did you go from being a taxi driver to an Entrepreneur?" He starts to laugh at my silly question, so I frown. "It was when Noor was born, after my surgery, that's when I decided it was time to give my kids the best life possible." My frown turns into a smile as I asked the next question, "Why did you quit college, I mean if you wanted to give us the best life possible wouldn't being an Engineer helped with that?" To this he replied smiling, "If I was an engineer, but wasn't happy with what I did, no one would have been happy at home either." I felt my face get pink from embarrassment. "Dad, sometimes I wish we lived in Pakistan. We would have such a big house,all our cousins could come stay over, we would have the best time all the time as well as no money issues. Plus I would get all a bunch of clothes for less than a hundred dollars!" He starts to laugh again, but then he got sad, I got confused. "If God wills that will be possible as well, when you get married we will all go there for 6 months prior, you can get whatever you want, but right now we just have to be patient. I promise we will definitely make our own house there too, I already promised your mother." "Okay now back to the interview. I remember you telling me how you drove Mariah Carey to the airport, how was that experience?" "It was just like any other person I drove to the airport. Nothing really mattered to me since I wasn't a big fan. She wasn't even that famous then anyway." We discussed the other people he had driven on the streets of Brooklyn, Manhattan, Jackson Heights, etc.Bringing us to the US was a big move, my grandmother had just passed away, my mother didn't want to leave her family. My dad told me his life story all over again, how he...
