[reading Paul's last article]
Okay readers, today we're having a little pop quiz, it's multiple choice, so sharpen your number 2 pencils and put your thinking caps on. Ready? Here's a quote: "Dad, you're an idiot." Now, contestants, this was said to me because of which of the following transgressions? A: Coming to the breakfast table wearing pajamas and black socks? B: Asking my oldest daughter if that guy I saw her talking to yesterday at school was her boyfriend? C: Referring to rapper Fiddy Cent as "Fifty Cents"? or D: Entering the room? Okay, pencils down. Actually it was a trick question. The answer is all of the above. Now do you know how many times I called my father an idiot? Zero. Why? Because I feared him. Back then we didn't share our deep personal feelings, our deepest conversations usually revolved around the tigers bull pen. But my kids, I can't get them to shut up! There's not a feeling that my kids are afraid to express over and over and over. And my wife reassures me this is a good thing over and over and over, and she's always right. So do I wish that my kids feared me? Well my house would be quieter, and I'd spend a lot less time in the bathroom, but no. Because I know that whenever they insult me whether it's a "You're an idiot," "You're a geek," or an "I hate you," an "I love you" isn't far behind. And it's the knowledge that my wife and kids love me that makes it safe for me to wear pajamas and black socks to the breakfast table.

COMING TO THE BREAKFAST TABLE

WEARING PAJAMAS AND BLACK SOCKS
00:00:23.808 --> 00:00:26.999
ASKING MY OLDEST DAUGHTER
00:00:26.999 --> 00:00:28.477
IF THAT GUY I SAW HER TALKING TO AT SCHOOL YESTERDAY
00:00:28.005 --> 00:00:30.671
WAS HER BOYFRIEND
00:00:30.694 --> 00:00:34.916
REFERRING TO RAPPER '50CENT' AS '50 CENTS '
00:00:34.939 --> 00:00:38.519
ENTERING THE ROOM
00:00:38.542 --> 00:00:41.291
OKAY PENCILS DOWN
00:00:41.314 --> 00:00:43.565
ACTUALLY IT WAS A TRICK QUESTION
00:00:43.588 --> 00:00:45.667
THE ANSWER IS ALL OF THE ABOVE
00:00:47.655 --> 00:00:49.314
NOW DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY TIMES
00:00:49.337 --> 00:00:51.444
I CALLED MY FATHER AN IDIOT
00:00:51.467 --> 00:00:53.719
ZERO WHY
00:00:53.742 --> 00:00:55.865
BECAUSE I FEARED HIM
00:00:55.888 --> 00:00:59.436
BACK THEN WE DIDN'T SHARE OUR DEEP PERSONAL FEELINGS
00:00:59.459 --> 00:01:01.423
OUR DEEPEST CONVERSATIONS USUALLY REVOLVED
00:01:01.446 --> 00:01:04.999
AROUND THE TIGERS' BULLPEN
00:01:04.233 --> 00:01:07.508
BUT MY KIDS I CAN'T GET THEM TO SHUT UP
00:01:07.001 --> 00:01:11.224
THERE'S NOT A FEELING THAT MY KIDS ARE AFRAID TO EXPRESS
00:01:11.247 --> 00:01:13.001
OVER AND OVER AND OVER
00:01:13.001 --> 00:01:17.001
AND MY WIFE REASSURES ME THIS IS A GOOD THING
00:01:17.557 --> 00:01:20.997
OVER AND OVER AND OVER
00:01:21.289 --> 00:01:22.905
AND SHE'S ALWAYS RIGHT
00:01:24.893 --> 00:01:26.774
SO DO I WISH THAT MY KIDS FEARED ME
00:01:27.776 --> 00:01:29.995
WELL MY HOUSE WOULD BE QUIETER
00:01:30.001 --> 00:01:32.301
AND I'D SPEND A LOT LESS TIME IN THE BATHROOM
00:01:32.324 --> 00:01:34.208
BUT NO
00:01:34.999 --> 00:01:37.544
BECAUSE I KNOW THAT WHENEVER THEY INSULT ME
00:01:39.114 --> 00:01:40.854
WHETHER IT'S A 'YOU'RE AN IDIOT
00:01:40.877 --> 00:01:42.504
'WHAT A GEEK '
00:01:42.527 --> 00:01:44.297
OR AN 'I HATE YOU
00:01:44.999 --> 00:01:48.621
AN 'I LOVE YOU' ISN'T FAR BEHIND
00:01:48.001 --> 00:01:51.792
AND IT'S THE KNOWLEDGE THAT MY WIFE AND KIDS LOVE ME
00:01:51.815 --> 00:01:53.538
