  1. Wait, I take everything I said back. I want Aaron Gouveia’s steak dinner.

  2. Great list, great dads.

  3. I didn’t realize I could ask for time machines and crazy crap like that. I’ve got some giggles and cartoons to trade…

  4. It’s kinda sad about Dave Lesser wishing his daughter would actually eat something. Reminds me of my parents when I was 14 and wouldn’t eat because I wanted to be Kate Moss…

    Simple and whimsical wishes in one list. I like it. Happy Father’s Day to all father figures in this world!

  5. Hey, Heidi. I didn’t mean to make anyone sad. My daughter is only 4 1/2. She’s not going for the waif look; she’s just a crazy picky eater. It’s frustrating, but hardly tragic.

    I’m glad you liked the rest of the list.

    Happy Father’s Day, dudes!

    • Oh lol there I go forcing my own biases on another person’s perfectly innocent wishes. Hahaha. I hope you had a good one and hugs to the lucky 4 1/2 year old!

      P.S. I got over Kate Moss & beauty mags after dad introduced me to Sky & Telescope ;)

  6. Yeah, Fathers Day was great when they (kids) were small. It’s when they grow up and move far away it becomes another Sunday in June. I’ll just spend the morning at the vet cemetery with my dad and work the rest of the day. Maybe if my Son makes it home from Afghanistan I’ll get to have that beer with him you were talking about. In the meantime, all you fellows with young ones, enjoy Sunday and EVERY OTHER day with your kids. Trust me, it goes by fast!

  7. I have a 16 yr old son. On Fathers Day, we are going on a fishing trip in the Chesapeake Bay for rock fish.

    I decided to invite my girlfriend who has a 10 yr old daughter. This will be very first time my son will see me interact with another woman.

    My son is very gentle and caring for kids younger. He has a Montessori education where kids are taught not just academics, but to care for one another. The older kids are responsible for the younger kids.

    So, I really am looking forward to Fathers Day!

  8. Sounds like a new adventure in life, Jules. Have a great time–hope it leads to many more like it.

  9. Crying and laughing, thank you! You have reminded me again how much I love men!
