Happy Father’s Day 2011!

Since I shared some important lessons from Mom on Mother’s Day, I thought today I would share some important lessons from Dad today.

  1. How to swear without swearing.  My dad is the only person I’ve ever heard yell ‘Godblessit!’ upon stubbing a toe.
  2. It is possible to eat the same lunch every day for decades and not get bored (though I would like to point out that raisins do not, in any universe, qualify as dessert).
  3. You are great just the way you are, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to be your best.
  4. Grilled cheese tastes best when made with at least a quarter stick of butter (I probably would have figured this one out on my own, but I appreciate the head start!).
  5. It’s nice to be important, but it’s important to be nice.  More importantly, people will almost certainly think you’re nice if you think they’re important!
  6. Sometimes, the right answer is “Bite me.”

Thanks Dad!
