My Dad. Mr. Low Key.

The Smithsonian Folklife Festival features Texas, Bhutan and NASA this year. Dad worked at NASA for 40+ years. This is how the conversation went last week.

Dad: "You know the folklife festival?"

Brewgal: "The one on the mall? Sure."

Dad: "Well, this year NASA is one of the topics."

Brewgal: "Really? Neat."

Dad: "Yeah. And oh by the way, I'm one of the exhibits."

Brewgal: "WHAT?"

If this happened to me, I'd be issuing press releases to all my friends. Link here. Dad's listed first.

Actually, I admire his humility greatly. Way to go, Dad!
