Video Surprise that Will Give Your Heart an Atomic Wedgie

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE


When I have to travel for work, I miss my family. No matter how busy I am, something just doesn’t feel right, constantly. Like your heart is wearing a pair of underwear backward.

Additionally, the empty ache of separation is often made worse when I think of my little guy missing me. My wife’s a big girl, and has probably had more than her fill of me most of the time, but when I think of my son hanging his head sadly because I’m gone, it gives that backward pair of heart underwear an atomic wedgie.

I cannot even comprehend how military service men and women do it, or anyone whose career takes them far away for long periods. I just got back from a business trip, so when I saw this video it really struck a major chord for me. So sweet and sad and wonderful. Enjoy!

    19 year Navy man. My son has a daddy doll. He is seven now and still has it. Hope to retire the daddy doll some day. This video got me right in the feels.

    Not to be an English Nazi here, but I believe the phrase “struck a major CORD” should be “struck a major CHORD”. 🙂
