Monday Mission 2.24

Here's PromoGuy's Monday Mission 2.24:

1. What does Father's Day mean to you personally?
We don't show a great deal of emotion in my family, so this is really the first year that we've celebrated Father's Day (he always got a card before, but we took him out for dinner this weekend). It's a day to honor and let the father (or father figure) in your life and let them know you love them.

2. Was there a Father, or a Father Figure in your life as you grew up?
Yes, my dad and my mom are still together.

3b. Would you like to become a parent? Would you be good at raising your own children?

I personally don't want to be a parent. I think I would be good at somethings (teaching a child to respect others no matter how they're different, appreciating things like books and art, etc.), but I would suck at things like making sure they ate their vegetables and cleaned their room. Heck, I don't even do that!

4. With Rosie, Callista, Jodie and Camryn all raising children without Fathers, Hollywood seems to be sending a message that children do not need male role models. Do you agree? Are these "stars" sending a good message to the young adults who admire them?
I think it can be a catch-22. Why should someone have to have a partner in their life to raise a child if they are ready and able to make that step? On the other hand, I think it certainly can't hurt for the child to have a father. Personally, I think it's not a bad message to send out to young adults granted that they could actually raise the child.

5. Do you think the absence of a loving, caring father in the life of a child could have any influence on their sexual preferences when the child grows up?
I guess this is the whole "gay men are caused by overbearing mothers with no fathers" argument but I don't think so. Of course, I could be wrong.

6. Was there ever a time when your father became "uncool." Or maybe embarrassed you?
When I was in middle school the local strip center was having a big shingding. They had a guy manning one of those big search lights and the guy aimed it into traffic and just about blinded my dad. My dad, not the most temperate of people, pulled over and started yelling at the guy. I was so embarrased.

7. Are you ever too old to kiss your Dad?
Never.

BONUS: When you coming home, dad?
"I don't know when,
But we'll get together then.
You know we'll have a good time then."
