You’ve had the best, now try the rest

My daughter has some of my sense of humor.

We’ve been out and about the last couple days and of course there’s Father’s Day stuff everywhere. With a smile on her eye, she looked at one rack of grilling aprons or something we saw somewhere, and she said, “So everyone who gets one of those is really the best father in the world?”

I mean, sure, maybe, whatever, but what’s would that even mean?

So we brainstormed our own line of honest Father’s Day t-shirts over lunch. Stuff like “ADEQUATE” and “A Sufficient Parent (Much of the Time)” and “Honestly, not the best father in the world, but not the worst either!” and stuff like that.

We laughed a lot but she also rolled her eyes and said she’d never give me anything like that. But I would totally wear one.
