Although Motor Man has only been Marshall’s step-dad for nine years, he was a friend of the family for several years before Marshall was born. So Marshall doesn’t remember a time that he didn’t know Motor Man.
The two of them have changed a little since this photo. Motor Man hasn’t given Marshall a piggy-back ride in years. Marshall’s baby teeth were replaced by his permanent ones, and facial hair has replaced his Kool-aid mustache.
Happy Fathers’ Day, Motor Man, from Marshall and me. And thanks. For everything.
