Sticker Shock

They always say that life imitates art. Sometimes I find that life imitates blogs.

My friend Tony wrote this great post about Father's Day and how he's joined the set of men he referred to as a fraternity of hard working chaps with pipes in their mouths. There are times it's hard to believe we're dads.

I don't feel 40. I don't feel like I should be in charge of things; young lives, mortgages, etc. When did I become responsible?

However, what makes me feel more validated is hearing how my counterparts wish for and receive what they most desired on Father's Day: Guitar Hero II. (Sorry Matthew, not all of us could get a flat screen.)

What made me laugh even more was when Tony said his daughter decorated the guitar with stickers.

Looking at my guitar, I know I'm a really dad.

I wanted to put the one with the skull on fire on my minivan, bit Gabe and I agreed it would look like I was trying too hard.

I DID get a flatscreen TV! But it's probably good I didn't get a guitar since I can't play a lick.

Oh, and no stickers will be going anywhere near my TV!

Sometime stickers rock too.
