1, I can see OP's dad was probably cracking a joke but OP didn't was too depressed. My parents used to tell me, and still sometimes do, that I should feel special because I was their only planned child. I have 2 older and 1 younger sisters. I never wanted to hear that and still don't.
Or, perhaps.. OP's dad is really just unintelligent, and only knew how to cheer his kid up the way he knew.. And couldn't think of something more enlightening.. And doesn't realize the effect it has on his poor son. (Sounds like a lot of inconsiderate parents I know, ever realize how many fucking stupid people you talk to, in just a day?!) I feel Op would be smart enough, in this day and age, to tell the difference between a good humoured father, and what dismissive is.
I would say to get some ice for that burn, but I think it'd be more fun to leave ice cubes in your dad's bed for him to find.
You should have said you felt the same way when you were old enough to realize you'd be stuck with having such a shitty excuse of a father and enjoy the reaction.
