Sorry about the long time since my last post, I've been very busy with work and my phone decided to take a dump on me so I've been back and forth with Verizon for the last few days getting that taken care of.
Tomorrow is Father's Day, the day we appreciate our overall underrated dads for everything they've done. It's always intrigued me as to why our moms get much more appreciation than our dads. Yes, I know, our moms carried us around as a parasite for 9 months and squeezed us out of a very tight body cavity one day, but our dads taught us a lot throughout our lives as well. For the longest time (I'd say it started to change in the 70s and 80s) dads ruled the house and were looked up to. Nowadays dads are portrayed as the incompetent, simplistic, stupid members of the family that the moms always have to clean up after.
I blame that stigma on the media. Look at all of the popular sitcoms and TV shows of the last 10-15 years. Everybody Loves Raymond, the King of Queens, Malcolm in the Middle, According to Jim, The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, The Cleveland Show... the one thing they all have in common is that the dad/husband is an idiot and his wife is always cleaning up after him. It's not just TV shows either. Most commercials are the same way, whether it's mom "tricking" dad into cooking dinner by buying charcoal for the grill or catching her husband in the act of staying up late playing Xbox with their son.
So for all you dads out there, happy Father's Day and don't hurt yourself trying to open the envelope with the card
