It’s Father’s Day. So get your traditional funny gifts out and buy a greeting card. I know it’s trite and well worn to celebrate this holiday for the sake of celebrating it. I thought I’d attack it with sentimentality. Saddle up, I thought I’d share my thoughts on my father with our illustrious listening audience.
Thanks for everything dad. You’ve dealt with me being difficult for a long time. As both my wife and friends can attest, I’m an asshole. I know during the most rebellious parts of my youth i amplified that trait to nearly unbearable levels. Thank you for taking that with a grain of salt.
You have been such a positive influence on me. You have pushed me to challenge myself and be self sufficient. You always encouraged critical thinking, even if it resulted in a conclusion you weren’t crazy about. Your advice has always been well grounded and you’re my go to phone call when I need another idea or opinion. I know I owe my sense of humor and deep love of sarcasm to you. You’ve been an astounding example of what a father and man should be.
I sincerely appreciate all that you’ve done
So to all fathers of who listen to Bored Shenanigans, who fathered listeners of Bored Shenanigans or to those who are using Bored Shenanigans as fuel while you and your partner create something to father, thank you.
Happy Father’s Day
