When Was The Last Time You Cooked For Dad?
At your age, he was most likely cooler than you, could drink you under the table and talk his way into more places.… He used a straight razor out of necessity and built things like dog houses. Here’s a pretty good reason to ditch the embroidered towels and make a gesture from scratch.
You can buy a lot of stuff for Father’s Day. Many mugs and socks and towels, rounds of golf and goatee shavers.
You can also do something, almost unheard of. Make Dad a stack of pancakes or go buy some good bagels and some lox and show up at 7am. In a world of buying things (and we sells things), the one thing that will never go out of style is creating a feeling of endearment. Someone cooking for you is always endearing, even if you burn the toast (or the roast). So this Father’s Day, if you can, show up early and cook for Dad.
