Okay, so last night I didn’t make a special post for my super special dad’s birthday. (Whoops). However, I am back with a Father’s day interview, with the coolest dad in my own opinion.
Now, before I get into this interview, I have to say that my dad got very real in this interview. However I would also say my dad would do really well in the 73 Questions With Vogue, because as real as he got, he was pretty simple and sweet with his responses.
So anywho, enjoy this Father’s day special-an interview with my dad, whom we’ll call Dragon.
