My father, Polo Ortega

by Jennifer Ortega

I want to introduce you to my father, Polo Ortega. He is a 60 year old man that’s {who’s} short but build {built}, loves to wear name brand clothing and bossing people around. My father hates to ask for help and works hard to have a life he believes he deserves with his many ex-wifes {wives} and children.

Now, although he has many “flaws” he believes he is perfect. He doesn't care about the opinions of others, he would rather hold his up high in pride than to bow to anyone. His idea of caring for his children is by giving them money rather than having an actual mother and father. You can say that some of his children dispise {despise} him but he still think he is doing good {well}. Although my mother took me away from all his mess, I must say that he has courage and strength. He is like a lion, he doesn’t lose sleep over the opinions of sheep. I guess that if you were to ask him who he looks up to, he would say himself. My father is a shallow, self-observed {absorbed} person and yet he would still tell you that he is perfect. All I ever do is point out my flaws rather than embarrassing them and I seem to care far too much what others think of me. At first glance, he looks like a 40 year old man that has money to spare and when he opens his mouth, he sounds like a politician. If you think why he is such a stubborn old man they say the blame can be set on his father, because when my father was very young, he lived on a farm and his father would have him take care of the animals and if one animal was ever hurt/killed by another, my father would take the fault and be punished terribly.
