About three years ago, my dad decided that he was going to learn how to play hockey. At the age of 59.
What was he thinking!?
He was thinking: it will give me something to do when I retire, it will give me a way to stay in shape, and it will give me something to be passionate about! At least, that’s my interpretation of what he was thinking!
He did it, took skating lessons, joined a “old, old timers league” and every Tuesday and Thursday, texts his family his “Stats” from his games.
I am very proud of my dad for venturing into something brand new for him. He has spent a lot of time learning . . . and falling . . . and scoring goals! With a goalie in the net . . . sometimes Kidding aside, I am very proud of him, and can’t wait to get to see him play again soon.
In honour of my Dad, I wanted to name a cupcake after him. His FAVOURITE kind of cookie is a peanut butter with a scoop of raspberry jam on the top. So, what better cupcake to make for him than a PB & J! I asked him what he would like me to name it, and he chose “The Classic”, named after his hockey team! How cute . . . and perfect for a name, as what is more classic than PB & J!?
Here is The Classic, customized for a special order, in honour of my dad’s hockey team. Apparently the “guys” like the cupcakes.
Well done Dad, I’m proud of your hard work.
