Last year, the narrator's dad left and they were unsure if he would come back. The narrator spent the next year waiting and worrying about what might happen. Today, the narrator's mom put them in a room and they found a gift on the couch. They were excited and sniffed it to discover that it was their dad. They were overjoyed to see him and couldn't believe their eyes. They showed their dad a sign to prove they hadn't eaten cat litter for six days. They wanted to do things like play catch and go for walks with their dad. They also wanted to show him the new dog park and tell all their friends that their dad was home. It was going to be a great summer for the narrator and their dad.
