Your dad knew how to party before you did and he’s invented the drinking hats to prove it. Somewhere in between buzzed and hitting on your mom’s sister, his PBR brain fired creative genius. No longer would holding you hamper him from holding his original children - beer. So with a Hamms steadied hand, he Einsteined a new way to drink his drunk while never dropping you.
So hipsters, next time you’re sweating to oldies while a tragically hip DJ spins vinyl and chugging tall boys between un-rhythmic hip swings, remember this…
Your dad didn’t stop drinking when you were born, he just found new ways to do it.
Also, thank you so much for all the love on the new blog and for checking it out. I’ve got a new post up on it too if you want to check it out.
With a whiskey-cold death grip on life’s balls, your dad raised you in his badass image. He taught you the finer arts of living dangerously and taught you how to recklessly chase happiness. Each day you walked in his shadow, and learned from the footsteps of his greatness. You were going to grow up to be an astronaut lion tamer who raced cars when you weren’t being a super hero. Your dreams were impossible, but that never stopped you from reaching for them. Introducing my new blog “I was an awesomer kid.”
It’s a photo blog dedicated to showing the world how awesome you were as a kid and challenges everyone to live like they were 9 again. I just started it, so feel free to tell me what you think about it and please submit your photos of you being an awesomer kid.
See how fun balloons can be — over and over again.

Yeah. If your daughter (or son, for that matter) comes to you and says that they want to be an engineer or a microbiologist, or a dental surgeon … don’t say “ew”. Or I will revoke your parent card.
