I am a husband, father, freelance writer, TV promo producer and webaholic. I write for Guyspeak, Asylum, Lemondrop, and on my humor blog, List Of The Day. My first book, 1,001 Facts That Will Scare The S#%t Out Of You, just published. Please buy a copy so I can eat. Thanks.
I live in the Dirty South with my wife and daughter, who's 8 and says funny things all the time, so I made a Twitter page just to share them with everyone.
Welcome back to Ask Dad, your one-stop-shop for a dude's point of view here on The Stir. Today I'm hanging in the Big Kid section so I can answer this question about a boy with a salty tongue -- just like his old man.
My husband swears all the time. I'm concerned because our 6-year-old yelled out our window last night, "That f**king guy is making too much f**king noise!" He said it was my fault for reacting. What should I do?
I hate to say it, but the kid was right: that f**king guy was making too much f**king noise. I could hear that motherf**ker all the way from here!
CafeMom is chock-full of wise and compassionate women who do a lovely job of answering questions for each other. But sometimes you want a different point of view, and that's my raison d'etre, mes amis (didn't know I spoke Latin, didja?). I'm the dad, and this is Ask Dad.
What are some signs that I shouldn't marry my boyfriend?
Short and direct -- I like it. The first thing that leaps to mind is, "If you have to ask ..." Having doubts doesn't necessarily mean you should never marry him, but you are wise to heed that quiet but insistent voice in your head until you are completely sure he's the one. As for specific signs, there are plenty, but here's a start.
Got a question about guys? Ask Dad, and you shall receive (an answer). Today's query:
My husband of 11 years just told me that before we got married, he went to a strip club with friends and got a couple of lap dances. I am angry and confused since we had an extremely active sex life. Why do men do this? Should I trust him or leave him?
Wait. We're talking about something that happened at least 12 years ago? Before you were married? And you're upset?
In a last-minute bid to avoid jail time, Lindsay Lohan has entered rehab, reports X17.
On Wednesday the actress checked into Pickford Lofts, a sober house started by O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Shapiro after his son died of a drug overdose in 2005. Lohan has also hired Shapiro as her new attorney, says TMZ.
