Thirteen fathers days have I celebrated. A little over 13 years ago, I became a Dad. Well, I became a father. I had to earn the title “Dad.” As I say on The Beer Dads every week, “any knucklehead can father a child but it takes a real man to be a ‘Dad.'” I believe that, too. I think 3B allows me to be a Dad.
This day has been awesome, so far, and I think it will only get better. The BCPF took me to Finnigan’s Wake (which happens to be the Official Emerald Isle of The Less Desirables) for brunch and we ate quite well. Then we went to Ma Père’s to make sure we wished him Happy Father’s Day and also pick up 3B who said he had a gift for me and that I had to “keep an open mind.” I didn’t know what to think it was and Ma Mère seemed to think I wasn’t going to like it. Well, it turned out that he wanted to take The BCPF, himself and me bowling for Father’s Day and he wanted to pay for it. How can I not like that!? My boy wants me to take me bowling! Well, there was no way I was going to let him pay for that. I told him that him being there with me and wanting to do that with me, well that was gift enough. And, I beat them both 2 of 3 games. 3B won one of them. He did good in that game; I see league in his future.
The BCPF said she’s going to take us out to dinner, too. I scored big time, I think! Oh, and it’s My ‘Rent’s 47th Anniversary today, as well! So yay to them!!! Happy Father’s Day to all the dads who read my blog and those who don’t.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
