I asked my husband what he wanted to do for Father's Day this year and he stated with a smirk, "A hike." I looked at him oddly and asked why he said it so sarcastically. He explained, "Every year we go on a hike. Every Father's Day it is all about being out as a family. It's always the same."
Except last we went to a nearby Potomac Nationals game. He went on a bit more and said, "Mother's Day is all about rest and relaxation. There are spa treatments, Mom doesn't cook. She's pampered and left alone. Father's Day is all about being up in Dad's face." OK, I might have paraphrased a bit in that last line, but it's precisely what he meant. He doesn't go off alone to play golf, hang with other Dad's who just want to sip a good pinot noir and watch the sunset or get a massage.
