Daddy’s Little Supergirl

| Related | July 9, 2013

(I’ve recently gotten a job after spending a year being unemployed. My boss has been praising my work, and I’m telling my dad about it.)

Me: “It’s nice, you know? I’ve spent a year sending out applications, and most places didn’t even reply. I was beginning to give up, but now I feel like I have something to offer again.”

Dad: “Yeah, but remember applying and working are two different things. The applications always look good, but you won’t be able to prove yourself until you get the job. People always make themselves out to be a cross between Kal-El and Jesus Christ.”

(Dad pauses for a moment, and glances at me.)

Dad: “You know who know who Kal-El is, right?”

Me: *raises an eyebrow at him* “Dude. I’m your daughter.”

Dad: *grins* “Yep. Of course you know who he is.”
