My dad and I didn't go on runs together or tinker around with car engines. My mom and I don't take "girls only" trips and post selfies of ourselves in front of monuments, waterfalls, and hovering over huge plates of nachos.

I think there are only a few photos where my dad and I appear together, from 1972, when he married my mom, and one of me and my mom together, from 1999, at my sister's wedding. I would like to say that despite all of that, I don't feel like I missed out on anything. But I'd be lying.
