The greatest thing my dad has ever said

“They always used to ask me and my dad if we were related to ‘Doc’ Blanchard. We weren’t. The balloonist was told to me by a French guy I was renting a car to in Manhattan. He said he was a famous ‘astronaut’ in France. I didn’t laugh. So you come from a noble race, whose name will die with you. No pressure or anything.”

~My father, to my brother.
