In-home Drive-by

As I say in this week’s Dustinland comic, my nearly three-year-old child openly mocks me on a daily basis. Maybe he’s still too young. Maybe it’s me. But certainly there is no part of my life that involves being a respected father figure. Loved? Yes. Exciting play companion? Correct. Funny wacky guy? Certainly. Kingly lord not to be trifled with? Never.

  1. Hey, at least it’s taunting by someone who loves you.

    A few months ago, I was jogging past the house of some twin boys, about eight years old, when one of them ran up to me and jeered, “How you doin’, old man?”

    I didn’t snap “I’m only 58, you little shit.” Instead, I did something worse: I challenged him to a footrace and didn’t let him win.

    Yes, I’m a horrible person. Why do you ask?

    • That reminds me of the scene in Billy Madison where Adam Sandler plays dodgeball with a bunch of grade schoolers and crushes them. Not that I love that movie but still, that was a pretty solid scene.
