And here's another perplexing gift giving holiday. We have already given Pops the socks, the tie, the sporting equipment, the GPS - maybe it's time to settle back in the barcalounger and read all about it.
If he ever tries to trick the GPS (my husband does), I can assure you that Lost States will be a lasting pleasure. He can ask it to find Texlahoma or Transylvania (between Indiana and Illinois) for a start and watch his passengers head for the hills to avoid that annoying voice "turn back in 300 feet". An excellent remedy for the back seat driver, and a perfect trip in the armchair.
Men With Balls is the primer to read. From the inside flap: "This will be the very last book you ever read. Because you, good sir, will know how to be a pro athlete. And pro athletes don't need books. Or strong family bonds. Not when they have access to millions of dollars and scores of smoking hot chicks with questionable judgement." There's something to be said for being Cynthia A-Rod.
Trouble getting out of the barcalounger? Exercises for Gentlemen, 50 Exercises to Do With Your Suit On, could be just the ticket. Taking tips from a more civilized time, these are useful and perspiration free.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL!
