So today was my first Father’s Day and it was a blast. Unfortunately, Kimberly woke me up at 5 a.m. and so it started a bit earlier than I would have liked. The family bought me The Simpsons Season 4 DVD and I watched four or five episodes immediately. It’s a great season: it features “Marge vs. the Monorail—one of the best episodes ever, “A Streetcar Named Marge”—which had the Ayn Rand School for Tots in it, “Whacking Day” (favorite line: “I’ve got a hankering for some spankering.”), and “Mr. Plow”.
We spent the rest of the day in our traditional holiday fashion of shuttling between my family and Sandi’s family. That meant we left the house at about 10:30 a.m. and returned by 6:20 p.m. That disrupted The Girls’ schedule, to put it mildly.
Not too eventful, but spending it with the people who mean the most to you makes it memorable.
