Mr.Roders In my neighborhood...Or not

So I was thinking about a traumatic episode I had as a kid....It doenst get much worse than this....
I was around 9 or 10 years of age....My father was heading to the store..And asked if I wanted to tag along....I declined the offer as I was playing outside and then I knew Mr.Rodgers would be coming on soon..And I did not want to miss it...After a short while my dad came home..And said"well you should of went to the store with me"....And I was like "why"?..........He says..With a straight face..."Well..I was standing in line at the store,and I turned around and Mr.Rodgers was in line behind.me..you missed it"....I thought for a minute..Than began to cry uncontrollably....Finally after seeing what a huge baby I was..He said he was only joking....Which I could not understand why Mr.Rodgers would be in my small town in Michigan....My dad was always playing little tricks on me..And my sister....And he still is kinda funny...Well I did not think that particular joke was funny...But I do believe he got a good kick outta it..Glad someone did!!

What a classic TV icon he was.
Your dad got you good, didn't he. I bet he felt kind of bad though, when you started crying.

My dad used to do the same kind of thing and I hated it too. Not funny at all! I know how you felt/feel.
