Daddy wants to go to Fashion Night Out

“Vern, I want to go to Fashion Night Out.”


“Come on!”

“Why? You’re an old man. Fashion is for the rich and young.”

“I’m a war veteran! I want to live life, not sit rotting.”

“Fine, next year we’ll go to the city for Fashion Night Out, but you’re paying for the gas, tolls and the tunnel.”

“No, no not in the city!”

“Daddy, that’s where Fashion Night Out is.”

“Paris, I want to go to Paris Fashion Night Out.”

“No! You’re losing your sanity old man.”

“Come on Vern! France was one of our Allies. I’ve not been out of the country since the war.”

“You were drafted into Vietnam, not WII.”

“War is war. I want to go to Paris.”

“Daddy, I can’t afford that. Plus where are you getting these ideas from.”

“My magazine, look see the pictures. There’s beautiful buildings, Louvre, Eiffel Tower, plus the girls wear miniskirts, leather, heels and the long hair.”

“That’s pervy daddy!  That magazine is French.  You don’t even speak French. Give up!”

“Vern just think about it. For once let’s take a trip out of the garden state. You deserve it sweetheart.”

“Daddy everyone deserves more than they are given, but this is my life. I go to work. Then I come home to take care of you.”

“Then take care of me in Paris!”
