DadPad Quotes & Notes: Soap on a Rope?


Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.  ~Bill Cosby

Most of you (if you’re under the age of 40) probably have never seen soap-on-a-rope.  Maybe today it would be substituted for an ugly tie or cartoon imprinted boxers.  Well, I could launch into a “van ride chat” (my kids would be able to tell you that a van was my favorite place to share a “lesson of life” (or a boring monologue in their presence) because they couldn’t escape my “sage” advice.  But, Bill Cosby is a funny guy and even I can’t try to take something that was meant to be a little tongue in cheek and turn it into some lesson.

So, today’s post is simple (and meant to be interactive):  What’s the funniest (or lamest) gift you’ve ever received as a dad or given to your dad (either intentionally or in retrospect you realized how silly it was)?  And, what was your reply (or your dad’s reply) when the gift was given?  (who knows, maybe we’ll generate a lot of ideas for Father’s Day in June 🙂
