1.) Safety-pinned a hand towel to my son’s shoulders as a cape and then spent the day running errands with him that way.
2.) Removed poop from pool table felt with Fantastic and a soft, white, cotton cloth. (Blot, don’t rub.)
3.) Memorized the theme song to Spongebob Squarepants completely against my will.
4.) Learned and taught others what question to yell at the top of your lungs to request admittance to Cub Scout BB gun and archery ranges.
6.) Taught a half-dozen third-graders how to use a pocket knife. In my living room. At midnight one Saturday night.

8.) Developed an appreciation for Chuck Norris jokes.
9.) Bought as many as five gallons of milk and five loaves of bread per week when both boys were having a growth spurt at the same time.
