the club you don’t want to join
June 18, 2006
At the baseball field, one father talking to another
Father One: See you tomorrow! Hope you have a great Father’s Day.
Father Two: Oh, I am sure that I will.
Father One laughs.
Father Two: Here’s hoping you get as lucky as me and get that patio furniture for Father’s Day, like you really wanted.
Father One laughs: Well, I got two roaster chickens to cook myself for Father’s Day.
Father Two: That’s bad.
The laughter fades away. At this point they both pause in solemn recognition of what brought them to this shared fate. They nod to each other, wave and drive off.
The moral of the story:
Mother’s Day comes before Father’s Day for a reason.
