Emails from a Mort

I love my dad. His name is Mort. He is like no other person. I am not being trite or hyperbolic. You really just need to meet him. He is fond of lots of things, like collecting Homies, writing books about what nomads like to wear, and finding the right pocket square to complement his cardigans. One of his favorite hobbies is emailing his friends and family pictures of things that he takes on his Blackberry. It is closest thing you can get to seeing into someone else's brain. Today I decided to blog all the pictures that he sends me today. He is remodeling his house and finding some weird shit, especially in my childhood bedroom. I will update through out the day.

Hey, I think Mort is pretty awesome. I still have fond memories of when Christian and I ran into you two on Hawthorne Street and had dinner and dessert. It was fabulous.
