For some reason the brilliance of dads doesn’t get as much coverage as the brilliance of mums.
Dads may argue that’s because they don’t moan about it as much as mums but we won’t go down that route in case our mum is reading this (and we don’t want to upset her).
We love the quiet brilliance of Dads. They sit in their chair with their remote controls and their mere presence gives us a sense of security. They give us lifts to obscure venues and are always willing to hand out the odd ten pound note. Yes OK, we know ‘willing’ isn’t quite the right word but we couldn’t think of a positive spin on the word ‘reluctant’.
Their advice may solely consist of the phrases ‘it could be worse’ and ‘as long as you’ve got your health …’( which is all very well but neither phrase helps during a relationship breakup or redundancy) but that doesn’t matter because dads have a secret weapon; they can administer a magic hug that involves a squeeze and a back pat that makes everything OK.
Yep, Dad’s are brilliant alright, and that’s why you should bring dad to The Bowgie this Father’s Day and treat him to a slap up Roast Dinner.
