My question is.  What is the best thing done in honor of you or gift that your kids have given you on previous father’s days.

Here is one for you, what’s the most embarrassing Dad experience you can recall?  My example, my son was about 4, brought him to the local hair salon for a haircut.  One of the employees was a very dyke-ey looking woman, wallet on a chain, short haircut, combat boots, and she walked out to have a smoke break.  My son finishes his haircut, I go to pay, and in walks the employee, and before she can get out of hearing range my son, at normal volume, says “uggghh daddy that fat man was smoking!”

If you can make only one game for everyone to play. What genre would it be and would it be past, present or future?

E3 question: If you could only buy one game from E3, which would it be?

What’s some good father – son games to play?

You’ve done stupid stuff as an adult. What stuff would you tell your kids to stay away from, what stuff would you turn a blind eye to, what stuff would you encourage?
