Happy* Father’s Day!
Yesterday was a hectic workday for me. I’m thinking it had something to do with the huge sale on lawn furniture we were having last week, but I know for darn sure it was more because today is Father’s Day. Because it is Father’s Day, many people were buying gas grills as presents. Not only is it a heck of a gift, but it’s also functional… you celebrate Dad and then he makes dinner… everybody wins. However, there is a small problem… Namely, these monstrosities come in a million and one pieces in a giant box and bear the above noted moniker, “some assembly required.” SOME?! To be properly understood, at my house, my father was Mr. ‘Fix It‘… so if we gave him a gift that required assembly, it was a sure bet that he would have to assemble it… and then families across America have to “try out” their new found over-expensive firepits by having the said paternal figure char some sort of carnage over said flame. Sounds more like slave labor than a gift. So… for whatever you find yourself doing today and to whomever this may concern, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
PS, dedicated to my Father.
