Henry Louis Gates Jr admired his father as a young boy however he wished he could spend more time with him Daddy worked all the time every day but Sunday 78 This was similar to my fathers working habits He would work all day from early in the morning until late at night When he came home he would put on the TV eat dinner watch the Laker game and go to bed So during the week the only time I had with him was while he was watching his Laker game In Gates home it was the same way Evenings we watched television together all of us after Id done my homework78 My time with my dad and the Laker game meant more to him than I realized at the time However I was Daddys little girl and I wanted to spend as much time with him as I could even if it didnt mean anything to him I also cherished the time I spent with him on Sunday mornings He would sit on the couch and read the newspaper and even though I couldnt read the paper well I remember sitting there next to him mimicking his every move He would sit with his right ankle resting on his left knee and I did the same He held the paper fully open with both hands and I did the same Although it was awkward because the paper was just about as big as me I remember him smiling down at me as I sat next to him and asking me about the articles I was pretending to read I would always say Daddy hold on Im not done reading it yet He would smile and pick up where he left off in his articleGates also treasured his time with his dad I used to get up early to have breakfast with Daddy eating from his plateMy food didnt taste as good as his
