Father's Day is this Sunday. How are you celebrating? Oh, haven't you thought of anything to do yet? You're not just going to buy your father a tie, are you? You can do better than that, you really can. Fathers tend to get the shaft in terms of receiving presents, or at least, my father always did. Although maybe that speaks to my own flaws rather than anything inherent in our society when it comes to giving gifts to men. I don't really know. All I know is that fathers—good fathers—deserve everything we can throw at them, because good fathers (like good mothers) inform everything everything about who we are when we are young and who we become as we grow up. Our parents write the beginnings to our stories and the best ones help us transition seamlessly into finishing our own narratives, constructing our lives on the foundation they built. So, you know, we should show our love. And is there a better way to show love than through material consumption? If there is, I don't want to know.
