Well, Carman's dad didn't call (again) and wish his son a happy birthday, though Carman never forgets to call his father when it's his birthday. My son says he doesn't care, but I think he must, deep down.
Carman's dad is a social worker for this agency, in a program called "Families First". Actually it made me laugh when I typed that. I should pray not to feel some bitterness.
