It's that type of long walk…

It's that type of long walk...
The streetlights turned on as Carole, my father and I pulled out of my Aunt Sigrid and Uncle Richard’s house in Detroit, Michigan. Carole was my father’s long time girlfriend since 1984. I laid my head down on the center council in the back seat of my dad’s BMW. It was warming up inside the car as we turned on to 7 mile. As we made the turns down the Grosse Pointe Farms streets, I could tell where we were by the potholes and tree and stop light combination patterns. My life was beautiful. I could even say elegant and euphoric. I got up every morning and my activities would range from going to Grosse Pointe Academy for Elementary School or The Post Office with my father in the mornings or better yet wake up late to the smell of freshly baked pancakes and perfectly cut grass. We cooked together, watched TV, went on vacations together, we pretty much did everything together. I considered myself to be one of the luckiest and happiest children in the entire world. I guess you could have considered me his mini-wife. We would travel in the winters to Florida, The Bahamas, or Mexico. Wherever we were, there was always fun to be had and we made sure we did all of it.

On September 5th 1991, I was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. I was born by a surrogate pregnancy. My dad wanted a child more than anything in the entire world, but he wasn’t ready to start a family. I was born at 12:06 at twenty-one pounds. My dad was at Burger King. Three days later I was taken to my dad’s plane and flown home. I grew up in a big house in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. My dad had bought it to make sure I had a safe, good, and happy environment to grow up in. When he got me home, he had no idea what to do. He put on my diapers backwards, washed the darks with the white and everything turned purple, and fed me till I burped out half of it. I was getting interviewed every month because of my strange and new birth. In the early 90’s it was very uncommon for children to be born from surrogate mothers, especially to a single dad. Other parents were concerned for me, and how I was going to turn out because of my lack for motherly input. My dad then hired Cheryl.

Cheryl was in the Army previous to becoming my nanny. She took care of me like she would her own kin. She took me trick-or-treating, she took me to see the Easter Bunny, and she even took me to see Barbra Bush. I was in a section of the Detroit Free Press with Mrs. Bush. My dad, Cheryl and I were like a little family. We went on vacations together, I especially loved to go sledding. Cheryl’s husband treated me like his kid too. I would go to her house when I got a little older and would stay the whole weekend. In third grade, my favorite thing to do was to go to 7 eleven and get huge slurpees with her. She was great. She made it seem like I had a real mom.

As a young man, my dad worked hard throughout the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s for everything he had. In the 70’s he worked for Ross Roy Advertising, my grandma’s husband, and was a head photographer and accountant. He opened up his own car dealership in the mid 80’s with his best friend Dick Huvare. Plowing his way though the business world he took over the Grover S. Wormer Company from my Grandpa and blew it up to make it a multimillion-dollar cooperation. He was extremely intelligent but lacked proper communicating skills and showing his emotions to others. This problem was evident throughout his entire life, but would come to be a bigger problem in the 1990’s and early 2000’s.
I was nine and we went to Kilarney, Canada. It was a small little town right above the upper peninsula of Michigan. We shared everything with each other. He had told me his plans to break it off with Carole that trip. This was something I thought would be a good idea because she didn’t make my dad happy anymore. At the time though, I was too young to realize how that would have an effect on me. When he broke it off with Carole, it tore a part out of me, and in the long term would have a devastating effect on her as well. I loved her; I needed her. She read to me, did my laundry, kept me company when my dad wouldn’t, she took me to the mall, and she would sleep on my floor where we set up a tent often, she was everything. He was drunk one night and he was laughing, he told me we were a great team. I thought we would always be that team. I thought that was the one thing in my life I could always count on.

This time six years ago I was a 6th grader at University Liggett School. The leaves had started to change and my dad went out every Wednesday to rake them before the before the garage men came to pick them up. When I was even younger than that, maybe six or seven I would take my little yellow rake and help him, I felt so special to him. I was everything to him. We would go everywhere together, from the post office to across the ocean. I had friends at school, but it was never anything compared to hanging out with my dad. Even when I was eleven, I sp

On Sunday, I decided to stop settling for something that wasn’t "me" and attend to a long-standing minor annoyance in my life. I had these cheap car seat covers that didn’t stay on the seat right and honestly did not match my car very well. I looked all over for handmade ones and didn’t have much success. I looked at various stores and balked at paying $20-$40 each for something that was either mind-numbingly plain or overly cartoony or wandering into the macho/bad ass zone. $60 in materials later and some time investment to figure out the engineering plus the great tutorial I found on Instructables, I now have these perfectly awesome car seat covers to compliment my car.

I used the old covers as a pattern and went from there. The other is on my sewing room floor and will get put together this week.
