Yes, I’m a slow learner in many, many ways. You’ll notice the arc of my Bad Dad stories (and life) is something like:
- I’m doing/allowing something I probably shouldn’t be
- My wife warns me
- I ignore/ridicule her advice
- Something bad happens
- I try unsuccessfully to hide it
- She finds out, isn’t amused, but doesn’t leave me
I’m most impressed with the doesn’t leave part! I don’t know if she’s a martyr or a glutton for embarrassment, but I’m not complaining.
