Notes From A Middle-Aged Dad #46: Russian Down The Road

Written by Alex on March 2, 2017 - 0 Comments

Dear Ivan:

As you may observe, both you (Ivan) and I (Alexander) have Russian names.  It is no accident.  A number of my great-grandparents (your great-great-granparents) came here from Russia.

Also, I might add that unrelated to our family, I’ve studied Russian History. I also have definitely sampled my of vodka.

Yet, I still haven’t had nearly the number of contacts with Russians that the Trump Campaign and Administration had. And, I definitely never talked with any Russians about the Election. Smoked fish? Yes. Cold Weather? Sure. Vodka? Absolutely. But, Elections? Nope.

I mention this because I want you to know that in case this current Presidential Administration ends prematurely, I can serve as President, in which case you definitely will get a bigger bedroom.

Meantime, dasvidanya and don’t forget to brush your teeth!

Love always,
