Saps, who can't seem to get over their need to have a dad
Read in August, 2010
This book is filled with little short memories from children about their fathers. I believe some of these kids must have been on an acid trip while gathering their memories. Okay, I'm sorry, I'm sure there were no acid trips involved. But, perhaps a little reality got skewed along the way, which led to a little gagging from me, from time to time. Nobody's father is perfect. Sorry, it just happens to be the truth. But then again, how would I know?
Although, I have to say, there were some stories that made me wish I had a dad. I'm sure we could of had some good times that would have left a tear in my eye. Oh-Well, what should I have for lunch today?
With that being said. I seriously am sadden and disappointed in the role men play in today's society. I think it's a sad, sad commentary on our society that men and fathers feel they have such a minor role in our world that they don't need to be present. I love men! I love the opposite they bring. The yin and the yang. I love how they treat, play and discipline kids differently than a women. I believe children need both sides. I love how, just a mans presence can calm a room, lower a level of hysteria. I think men get a bum wrap. Men can be wonderful husbands, fathers, friends, lovers. That was some of the deciding factors in my choice of a husband; He'll stick around, he'll be a good dad, he honors his role of being a man, he still open my car door for me and best of all he was and will always be my best friend.
