dad’s perception of himself
Jane: Dad, what is your blood type?
Dad: I am O negative. I can donate to anyone. That means I am a hero.
Mom: When I went to the ER and I needed a blood transfusion, you didn’t give me anything!
Dad: Ahem, I am a reluctant hero.
He actually said that last part in English. He is much more familiar with literary tropes than I had thought.
