While I was not present during this fraught with emotion encounter, I can pretty clearly see how it all went down.
The plea. Emily has been a pest, most likely. Terrance has warned her that if she asks once more for ice cream, she will get nothing. Using her best Clarence Thomas Logic (ie not very good) she decides to WRITE him a note. Because that gets around the "asking" part of the warning:
(Dad Can I have some desert today Love Emily)
Along with this heart filled missive was the RSVP of young girls notes:
The choice here is clear. He either says Yes, Gaining him a "You ROCK!" status, or the dreaded "You do not rock". Not even a name use there. Not even "Dad, You do not Rock". In one fell swoop she is stripping him of his title and familiarity. He has become the Voldemort of Fathers. He shall not be named.
His choice is a stark one. Does he keep the ring and become all powerful, or return it to Mordor and save the Shire? Oh wait, that is a different story. The consequences, however, are nearly as dire.
What was his choice? How did it all end?
The final Card in this Haiku of note passing was direct:
With extra emphasis on the "rock', to demonstrate how hard he Does NOT rock. I can only surmise he said "No".
