I never had a father. I had a Daddy. There’s a difference, you know.

A father plants his seed with his DNA into a woman. She gives birth to a baby. The seed planter is a FATHER. I could go on about what his responsibilities to that baby are, and tell you that some men live up to them and some don’t, but that’s a story for another time.
