Sunday Drive with Dad

We can all learn from this and aspire to be better fathers...

A father, who worked away from home all week, always made a special effort with his family on the weekends. Every Sunday morning he would take his 7-year old daughter out for a drive in the car for some bonding time.

One particular Sunday however, he had a bad cold and he really didn't feel like being up at all. Luckily, his wife came to the rescue and said that she would take their daughter out. When they returned, the little girl anxiously ran upstairs to see her father.

"Well," the father asked, "did you enjoy your ride with mommy?"

"Oh yes, Daddy" the girl replied, "and do you know what? We didn't see a single dumb bastard or lousy shit head!"

Brings a tear to your eye doesn't it?

  3. I'm sure my children have quite a healthy swear word vocabulary thanks to listening to me drive. Now if they can be as creative as me is the question!

  5. Switch the mom and dad around for my childhood. Mommy has a potty mouth.
