Dad on the Tube

14 commentsFamily,People

My hip Dad dis­cuss­es hip replace­ment (click to enlarge).

No mat­ter how old I get, I’m nev­er too old to cart­wheel across the room when I see a fam­i­ly mem­ber on TV. My father was inter­viewed for a med­ical show the oth­er day, and man­aged to bring some style and humor to the geeky and dry sub­ject of hip replacement.

Pauline, Jad, Mom, and seri­ous Dad.

Razika!! Come quick Mister TV!

Ever the fash­ion guru, my moth­er dressed him up in a dark blue jack­et, white shirt, and col­or­ful tie with a swirly Arabesque pat­tern. He looked very snazzy (and not just for a doc­tor) and spoke elo­quent­ly with­out a sin­gle ummm.

He even remem­bered the name of the inter­view­er (who was also quite easy on the eyes) and dropped it into the con­ver­sa­tion here and there.

The inter­view had aired live in the morn­ing, but since we missed it he brought back a DVD, which we all watched togeth­er. So the “Hey how can you be right here and in there at the same time?” jokes round­ed off the experience.

In those moments I was no longer a seri­ous film­mak­er-in-the-mak­ing. I was a very sil­ly kid… and a very proud son.
