... are usually very boring. But when it concerns my dad they are not.
Yesterday were the good-bye ceremonies for my dad because it was his last day of work. The whole thing took place in the municipal hall, so there was quite a crowd. There were lots of people holding speeches, and of course people like the mayor took this opportunity to show what kind of a great guy he is, what he's doing for the schools, renovation, etc. pp. But with most of the other people I really had the feeling they wanted to honour my dad and that their good-bye and thank you speech was sincere. I am very proud of my dad I have to admit. I even learned some things myself that I didnt know about him, i.e. what he did and accomplished in his life.
My mom will also retire this year, so it's good that they're not too far apart. But it's a bit strange for me to think of my parents as being retired. This means that they're getting old... And me too.
