So, I've just seen "Big Fish," a tremendous movie, by the by, and it's got me thinking about fatherhood. Mind you, it hasn't made me want to be a father--****, I've never even managed to keep a hamster alive for more than a couple of months--but about fatherhood in general. Now I'm sick of thinking about it, so it's time for you folks to do it for me.
Show me some advice your father gave you, or something funny you saw a father do in public... anything along those lines. Hell, you can even use this space to recreate your favorite "little Billy" joke, for all I care. Just make it funny--and you'll even get extra points if you can be funny and poignant at the same time (I admit, I cried like a motherchicken at that damned movie; I thought I would have to leave).
Judging will happen Wednesday evening, after I've taken my dad to see "Big Fish." (:
