How My Father is Exactly like Goku…

Yes, this is a Dragon Ball Z reference. 😛

I belong to that group of girls that loves gory fights of DBZ. I have been a huge DBZ fan since the last 14 years (I’m 20). It has taught me many valuable lessons in life, especially the importance of love, loyalty and friendship. Goku, the protagonist of the series, has such a radiant and kaleidoscopic personality that he tops my list of favorite anime protagonists.

It is only recently that I realized how my father is so similar to Goku. And following this analogy makes me Gohan (his son in the anime). So, I present everyone with this list of uncanny similarities between my Dad and Goku –

  • He is way too honest and clear of heart.
  • He depends on Mr. Piccolo (irl my elder brother) to take care of me and ‘train’ me.

  • He is always excited to see me…
  • But he hardly pays much attention to our conversations.
  • He is always busy.
  • He tells me I have potential to be great.

  • He loves food as much as Goku does.

  • He saves me from mom’s constant nagging.

  • He is the strongest when it comes to fighting and protecting his family.

  • And Last but not the least — no matter where he is, I know he will come to my rescue no matter what.  🙂

There are a million more things my father does for me, and being his only daughter I think I get more love than what Gohan did from Goku.

And I am very grateful for having a ‘legendary super saiyan’ as my father. 🙂

P.S. I know this is a very different post as compared to my previous posts, but then again I write anything on everything; I’m just experimenting. 😉
