My dad is the most famous scientist in the world. Without him the world really would fall into chaos, I think. He can fix city-wide blackouts with just the flip of a switch and invent toast that… that… well, to be perfectly honest, I’m not sure what exactly Dad’s Super Toast actually does.
Because of all this, he’s busy all the time and is usually away from home for days, sometimes even weeks. Gaz and I have gotten used to him being away all the time. He’s off working on important things for people and probably gets more done than he would if he always stayed home. It’s fun to see him every now and then and go out for pizza and stuff when he has a little free time, if I’m not in the middle of thwarting Zim’s latest evil scheme.
I really look up to Dad, and would like to do things along the lines of what he does—only with the legitimate science of paranormal investigation, instead of following directly in his footsteps like he wants me to. Supernatural happenings are things you need to study, have to get right in, take a look at, dissect, you have to remove things, have to understand, comprehend. Dad does all of this on a regular basis, with what he calls “Real Science.” I would like to be able to do the same with my own studies.
My dad is NOT abusive. It’s not that he doesn’t love us, it’s just that he’s often too busy and forgets to remember us. Also, he’s not really the type to be overly-affectionate with anyone. That’s okay because neither Gaz nor I are really the types to need an overly-loving father. I think it would be a bit terrifying. As for his treatment of my studies and evidence, you have to remember that he is a man of science and can’t look at any sort of paranormal theory without a large amount of skepticism. However, I do wish that he would at least pay attention to what I have to say and not constantly try to make me be exactly like him… I just take it as a sign that he’s concerned about my future. I want to make him proud of me, but at the same time I want to study things that I’m interested in and passionate about.
When all is said and done, I’m proud that Professor Membrane is my father.
