We Are 138 #27 - Punk Is Dad

What you need to know about my dad is that he is the biggest Misfits fan there is. At least he thinks he is. The Misfits are a punk band from America. They are all about horror movies and gore. My dad knows everything about every single line-up of the band and he is not shy to share his enthusiasm with anyone whether they are prepared to listen or not. When we went to university open days, he’d wear his fan shirts and walk around campus proud like a dog with a big stick. One of the tutors noticed and made a remark in his presentation about liking Glenn Danzig. My dad cornered the poor bloke afterwards. It was so embarrassing. Luckily, I got accepted at another university. I am doing forensic science and am loving my course
