I suppose if he starts asking questions I won't beat around the bush, but I'm not looking forward to the conversation. It's one thing to run my mouth in a relatively anonymous forum, and quite another to spoil my son's image of whoever he thinks I am based off his limited experience... Reading stories, going to the park, etc.

Obviously this depends on what exactly you're defining as "fucking nuts." At least for me personally, hearing the "fucking nuts" stories of my father (through other relatives) did not spoil who my father was; it actually made him more relateable. If he had taken the time to tell me himself, and used them as a lesson (like this is why I say don't do 'X') it would have been a great bonding session between the two of us. I only recognize this now because my step father was the one who did this for me, and I am much more open with him and in some ways I even feel more close.

I'm with Ryan. It probably would be good for your offspring to see that. I dated a woman whose father admitted to everyone that he had done every drug that was available to him growing up. He told her and her sister that since he knows the look of every drug, they'd better never let him see them high.

Interesting...hadn't thought about that. My kids are grown and my middle one can out-crazy anyone else I know. Course now I have to fret about the grandkids getting on Facebook. Consider

Brought a labcoat today because I need one. Too small.

I'm working on Saturday...

...and one of my tone-deaf co-workers insists on listening to crappy music and trying to sing along...

...and when I went to refill my coffee I discovered that they only have Maxwell House.

Why me? I didn't do anything wrong! Weeping

I have no idea what to buy at the grocery store today that constitutes actual food. My list has things like toilet paper, jelly, and sugar on it. Not much to build a meal from in that. Undecided

Something I don't have to schlep out to the store to buy and then cook. Dodgy

I'd demand at least a ninja turtles band aid. Nobody wants a side kick bandaid.


My first world 'Murica problem....the price of 5.56 is going up again thanks to panic buying.
