One thing you could say about my dad -he stood on his hands. A lot.

While I was growing up, we thought nothing of seeing him leap up from watching TV, nimbly (敏捷地)toss his feet in the air. and walk around the living room on his palms. The most any of us would say was, "Dad! I can't see the TV!"

He liked to enter the water that way, too. At the city pool, he would press his palms to the searing (灼热的)concrete walkway. His legs would rise. Slowly, he would raise one hand and then the other over and over, finally jumping headfirst into the pool. The kids in the pool would go wild, all except his own. We'd seen that show so many times that we were blase.

Sometimes the teenage lifeguard would blow the whistle at Dad and say things like, "Mr. Miller, we can't have you doing these feats here. Some of these kids might decide to ..."

"Dad got into trouble at the pool," we'd tell Mom when we got home.

"Oh really?” she'd say. ”Again?"

When I was a small child, I thought hand-walking was a thing fathers did. But when I became a teenager, I realized that Dad was different, and that what he was doing was strange. And I was ashamed by his strange behaviors. "How come Dad has to walk on his hands when other people are around?" I complained to my mother. "Ann's father doesn't do that."

My mother would say, “Because he wants to,” she'd say mildly. "But," I'd say. She'd look at me over her book. "Listen, your dad works hard all day. If that's what makes him happy—running around on his hands like a kid, then that's what makes him happy."

There might have been lessons to be learned: About finding your own pleasure, about creating your own joy. Sometimes things are more interesting from a different perspective. But I don't think Dad was trying to teach us anything. He was just standing on his hands because he felt like it. And anything we thought or learned was accidental.
