I always did great, but I had dad wrapped around my little finger, I was an only child, and dads way of showing love was with money. He just didn't know any other way, not that I understood that until years later.
Heh, how many 15 year olds can do the puppy dog eyes and walk their dad into a jewelry store, try on a diamond tennis bracelet and say I want one? If mother hadn't been there he would have gotten it for me. I mean he would have had it kept secret until my birthday or Christmas or something, but he woulda. I got one when I graduated high school, still have it too.
