Parents tend to be taken aback the first time one of their kids doubts something they say.
But that's been happening for a long time.
My father knew Jack Palance during World War II. I believe they were in the same unit being trained for action in B-24s.
They weren't best buddies or anything. But they did spend some free time together.
Anyway, years later, my family was at a drive-in movie. (This was several years before I was born.) Palance was in the picture.
My dad mentioned that he had known him. And my sister didn't believe him.
Must be rough to have your kid all but call you a low-down Yankee liar.
