Re: Got a woman coming over. . .
I have an idea. . .I am going to make my contribution to the Married Folks here as an Ex-Married Folk and an actively involved Father.
Married Dads. . .I want you to go to your kids and tell them, "I have a hot woman coming over tomorrow tonight. She's got a killer bod and we've been getting hot and heavy over the last week with flirting and texting. I am so excited. My move is so smooth. . .get this. . .learn my move here - this works every time: I'm going to order in some Chinese, make Sangria for her, because she likes Sangria, flip on a movie and then get frisky with her about halfway through. Oh yeah. I'm scoring. She'll be putty in my arms.
That woman is YOUR MOTHER.
Now. . .I want you to SCRAM. . .all of you. Find some place to be. . .get on the phone to friends, grandma, get the backyard tent out, whatever. Let your mother know what you are doing and where."
You see, as fathers, we have a unique role - to inform our kids that in life and with the world, they aren't always going to be wanted, that they aren't always going to be the S**T at their jobs, in their social circle, whereever, and as of this moment - learn deal with it. Be independent.
Be scarce sometimes.
Kids need a Dear Old Dad to tell them this, don't you think? To reflect back on Dad when they are older. . .
And maybe I seem a bit confused. . .but maybe, I got you pegged! Ha! Don't know what to do about those tossed salad and scrambled eggs. . .they're posting again. Scannerguard has left the building.
