Today my dad came round to do all my DIY for me. Back in February I locked myself out of my ‘man‘ drawer – or, the drawer in our house where we keep Alice’s screwdrivers.
I tried and failed to get into it, over and over. I did the best I could, but getting into the drawer was beyond my realms of masculinity.
So I got my dad to come round and do it for me.
He also tried and failed for a little while, and then he got annoyed and just tore the damn thing open with his bare hands. Not only is he more practical than I am, he’s also more determined. My dad doesn’t let things beat him, and he’s not one to give up.
So, he got in. Meanwhile, I was playing keepy-ups with a balloon leftover from Alice’s birthday.
I did cook a pretty awesome steak this evening, so I’m not a complete failure of a man.
Until tomorrow, tear it open with your bare hands.
