Divorced, Sicilian born and raised grandpa of 5, great grandpa of 1. Enjoys cooking, soccer, billiards, bacci ball, playing cards and dice. Likes to keep busy and don’t understand people who can watch tv all day. Would love to travel more, but it’s no fun alone. My kids, they all grown and … too busy. Everyone is always so busy. I would love to see my youngest daughter and my bella granddaughter more, but my daughter, she too busy. My son, he lives states away and he never has any money. But goes out to eat all the time. I don’t understand how they can go out to eat so much! That’s why his wife so fat. Too many people fat in this country. I don’t understand. My youngest daughter, I told her right before she got married to that black man, that she can’t gain any more weight. I told her that if she did, I wouldn’t go to the wedding. She wasn’t happy but I tell it like it is. If I have something to say, I say it. I don’t be mean but if I have to say something, I say. My oldest daughter, I don’t understand. She’s not my real daughter but I raise her. She never call, never visit. I heard more from her when she live far away. I don’t understand today. So different than the Old Country. We would get together every weekend and laugh and talk and eat. We set up big tables in the yard where everyone come together. The children would all run around. Today they no do that here. Nobody ever comes to visit, everybody too busy. I don’t understand.
Note from the youngest daughter: If the above interests you or someone you may know, please oh please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get you hooked up with my dad. Not that I would know if things work out since I never see him or talk to him. :D
Let’s have fun this week. We want you to write a personal ad for your character, like one you would find on a dating site. The ad should tell us about your character, but should not be a laundry list – and no cliches about walks on the beach.
