We both thought this was hilarious. And so typical, because my dad tends not to remember things like this.
But when I went to add this year's card to my pile of cards that I keep for who knows what reason given the lack of handwritten notes, I realized that this wasn't the second year in a row for this card. It's the THIRD year in a row that my father has given me the exact same card!
He'll forget all about this before the month even ends, so there's a good chance we will revisit this conversation in a year's time, my friends. Will he go for four in a row in 2018? Stay tuned...
