ok, i gotta level with you - i've failed as a dad!
i want to take a moment to seriously encourage, exhort, explain and basically vent to all men (and women) out there that read this...please! don't let this happen to you like it did to me!
it started so simple...we were in our old hometown, taking care of some personal matters...the wife was gone, my daughter was with her...just me and my son - let me just tell you, me and my son are sharing some great moments together lately - and i'm loving it...until it happened.
we were bored, nothing to do, time on our hands, killing time, (insert cliche for boredom here), nada, zip, zilch...you get the point. so...
we enter a business that's teeming with women and the fall happens
we saw something we ought never have to see...that's right...
we were in a nail salon (WAITING ON MY WIFE AN DAUGHTER) when we saw it...
another man having a pedicure AND a manicure!
don't ask me if he got his nails painted - dunno!
don't ask me what type of "did" he got on his nails - dunno!
the point is this...i felt like revoking his man card right there.
don't tell me he was "confident" in his manhood, or he was a metrosexual, this was jefferson for crying out loud - there are no metro-whatevers there - perhaps as tony says, he was a rednexual!
anyway, mamas don't let your babies grow up to be guys who get pedicures and manicures
dads, learn from my fall - don't subject your young men to such an experience (pretty sure that should be in scripture)...
for the record, yes, i did apologize to my son for subjecting him to such a traumatic experience and i repented!
life goes on, apologies exchanged, counseling is next (jk)
