My Father's Hands.
philosofly: Every time I go home, I sneak furtive glances at my father’s hands. I grew up with those hands, holding mine, helping me, pushing me forward. I see them now, much as I saw them then.

The answer is an apple box, a common tool used for a lot of television...
Man, what kind of country do I live in?? Asking me if I think your cousin is beautiful, and reminding me that she is single.. yeesh.
