I woke up in a panic today realizing that not only had I not gotten anything for my father dearest for Father’s Day, but I also hadn’t given you guys any ideas for what to give your padre.. how rude of me, I know. But the good news is that there are still 5 days until the big day so last minute shopping is in full effect. And before I even start this I would like to point out that grillin’ spatulas, ties, and homemade bookmarks are all great gifts, but we are going high class around here because my father would expect no less.
Now sometimes I wonder why there is not a daughter’s day.. I am a wonderful daughter, I should be rewarded. But then I realize that dads get their own special day because they have spent 18 years providing places to live, food to eat, and dad jokes to laugh at. Now moms are wonderful at back-scratching, making chicken enchiladas, taking their daughters on countless shopping trips to Ross, and helping pick out the perfect prom dress (or maybe that’s just my mom, she’s pretty great). But this post is about the big poppas out there holding it down for the fam. Where dads may lack in maternal instincts and the ability to hang dry their dau clothes after countless times of telling them they get ruined in the dryer.. they make up for it by saying yes when mom says no, commenting on how ripped your jeans are and asking where the rest of your skirt went, and even killing small, life-threatening insects and rodents.
If it weren’t for the whitey-white skin, huge quads, and sarcastic manner, we may never be sure that Jimmy boy is my dad. But lucky for me Jimbo is the best bodyguard, ATM and Cabo club dance partner all wrapped up into one (see video below) daddy-o. So ya know I won’t really get too sappy about him, but I do love the big fella and he may even grace us with his presence for a blogpost later this week.
All of this was the longest intro ever into a gift guide for your pops, so sorry I got a little wordy today. Enjoy this gift guide, buy some gifts and hope that dad subtracts the gift from the running tab of everything you owe him throughout the years.
Have the best of evenings and we shall chat tomorrow.
