We both had Tuesday off this week and so we went into Orange County to the beach and a celebratory lunch at Morton’s for Chief Telfer. We stopped at Room and Board to look at a possible swivel chair candidate and Telfer bought a sock monkey that’s maybe dressed like a bee for the baby (code: for us). He even strapped it in the backseat of our car for the danger-filled journey home.
Telfer can be stoic, not easily excited or demonstrative or chatty about personal details when you don’t know him well, but with me and his close family and friends, he is sweet and kind and yes, very excited about being a dad (does this answer everyone’s questions?).
