As a child, I always thought of my dad as the ultimate source of knowledge. His head was incessantly buried in the newspaper solving the daily Jumble and crossword puzzle. To this day, whenever anything is amiss in my life – whether the toilet isn’t flushing, my car’s clutch is slipping, or I need to hang a painting – the phone call to my father is always first on my list.
Over the years, I’ve come to realize that no matter how many academic accolades I achieve – I’ll never know as much as my dad. Don’t get me wrong, my years of schooling has educated me quite a bit… on discrete and differential calculus, complex algorithmic analysis, and other such (useless) topics. All my years of education didn’t teach me the most important lessons of them all… simple life lessons.
I’ve realized that I need to start capturing and documenting my father’s knowledge – before it skips my generation. So without further adieu, I present to you, the first in a short series of “How To’s” featuring the “OG Mr. Kanno” aka my dad… Enjoy!
(and save some dolla-dolla bills!)
