….many years ago we had a TV show that was basically about kids saying embarrassing things to a presenter while their parents looked on in horror.
I think an adult version is well overdue.
My own father came out with a few classics of his own when I was growing up.
You probably remember the…
‘Why don’t you have a sausage?’
…conversation he had with my sister when she announced that there was nothing vegetarian on the hotel menu.
I swear I don’t know how the waitress didn’t lose it.
I know I didn’t.
Another cracker was the..
‘I know I can’t swim, but when the time comes and I hit the water, I’ll know
what to do.’
…conversation he had.
Thankfully he never had a chance to prove that theory while he was alive.
Because I know one thing about that assumption.
Most people’s impulse when they hit the water is to scream a lot, splash around a lot, and sometimes sink a lot….
….not suddenly turn into Michael Phelps.
But no matter how much I tried to pick holes in his statement he always stood
‘It’s just like a dog, they don’t know how to swim and they can do it.’
It still makes me chuckle.
I had my own goof up earlier, when I didn’t turn on the buy button on my new Fontasitc product.
I’m sure my dad’s looking down, having a chuckle at that one.
PS – I’m also sure I’ve given my own kids plenty of ammunition they can use against me too.
But I think they’re saving it for the right time.
