When I was 14, my dad pressed a copy of moby dick into my hands and told me I should read it and then we'd talk about it after. Explained the concept of symbolism to me, how Ishmael was a reference to something deeper, and we looked up the biblical story together.

I eventually gave up on the book because the story with queequeg and ishmael was too weird for me.

I got all the way through it years later, but it never came up in conversation between my dad and I until about 5 or 6 years ago, and Sean and I teased him about it it.

Now I really want to talk about moby dick all of a sudden. Sorry about that dad.
