I always knew my dad was a bit of a troublemaker, but after interviewing him I realize I underestimated him and his siblings. Many of his stories have been reserved for a later date (things I’ll understand when I’m older). However, he was able to share a few of the more innocent stories with me, like the time he stole an American flag (7:15), or when he took his rental car off roading with seven of the University of Chicago’s finest soccer players in the car with him (4:39).
