He pulled up in my driveway, tears in his eyes. I got into the car and closed the door. 20 seconds of awkward silence later and he says, "I was just making a joke, Nathan. It was just a joke.

" I could feel my heart sink at that moment.

It has always been hard to apologize to my dad, but this time I forced the words through the mud and replied: "I'm sorry, dad, I-"

"No, I'm sorry. Sometimes, you know, no matter how hard you try or what you do, you just can't get it right. I didn't mean to... belittle you or anything.

" His words were soft, yet teeming with shame.

I looked out of the window to see my dad clearly. "No, you're fine," I said with as much sincerity I could muster.

The rest of the ride was fighting among itself with whether it wanted to be awkward or heartbreaking. It ended up being a good mix of the two.

We went golfing, and it was terrible.

I'm sorry, Dad. I won't hurt you ever again.
