Dad on the Tube

My hip Dad discusses hip replacement (click to enlarge).

No matter how old I get, I’m never too old to cartwheel across the room when I see a family member on TV. My father was interviewed for a medical show the other day, and managed to bring some style and humor to the geeky and dry subject of hip replacement.

Pauline, Jad, Mom, and serious Dad.

Razika!! Come quick Mister TV!

Ever the fashion guru, my mother dressed him up in a dark blue jacket, white shirt, and colorful tie with a swirly Arabesque pattern. He looked very snazzy (and not just for a doctor) and spoke eloquently without a single ummm.

He even remembered the name of the interviewer (who was also quite easy on the eyes) and dropped it into the conversation here and there.

The interview had aired live in the morning, but since we missed it he brought back a DVD, which we all watched together. So the “Hey how can you be right here and in there at the same time?” jokes rounded off the experience.

In those moments I was no longer a serious filmmaker-in-the-making. I was a very silly kid… and a very proud son.
