A Slow Morning

November 19th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  1 Comment

Wait, is it still morning? No, it’s afternoon now, technically. And still nothing new here on Dadwagon. That’s because one of two things has happened:

1. We have solved all problems related to fatherhood. Our children are angels who do our bidding without hesitation, our wives have finally admitted we are capable of managing the household, and society at large has deemed our efforts not only manly but worthy of state sponsorship. We are now out drinking beers (paid for by President Obama) in celebration.

2. We are all utterly mired in child poo. Literally up to our waists in waste. Unable to type, nagged at by our wives, and struggling to get some actual, paid work done in the meantime. Meanwhile, we look ahead to the weekend and the blessedly light week of Thanksgiving, and ignore our blogging duties.

Which do you think it is?

    This just means your job here is done! Children successfully raised! With healthy work ethics and moral compasses intact! Mission accomplished.
    Well done. You’ve earned a five-year nap.
