Category:                            Father’s Day

Anxiety Level:                   Low

Level of Difficulty:            Easy (piece of cake)

Results of Blowing It:      We’re cool

Father’s Day is June 16.  I decided not to create a trite, over-worked, list of things you can get or do.  Dads are easy to figure out.

We like to eat.  The better the flavor the more we consume, especially if barbequed steak, corn-on-the-cob and cake is on the menu.  Dads generally like playing or watching sports.  Some like yard work and tinkering with the car.  Others abhor those chores, preferring a golf round.  Maybe your Dad is a fisherman.  I get bored fishing though I don’t mind cleaning them, whenever they’re caught that is.  I catch fish as often as the appearance of Halley’s Comet.  I spend more time untangling than angling and am too impatient to fish.  Or golf.

Most dads have simple desires for their kids.  We want them to be informed, educated, and able to recognize when it’s time to change the oil or feed the dog.  We want them to try their best in everything they do.  We probably already have everything we need, so please spare us gifts of cologne, ties, or soap on a rope.  Save your money to buy us a Porsche.

The bottom line is, a father just wants to be with his kid.  It doesn’t matter what we do.   But going out for a piece of cake?  That’s a fine idea…

Happy Father’s Day.

    Golf’s a amazing game, shame I don’t get as much time to play as I used to. Still find plenty of time to watch it though! – Singletary
