i searched through a vast sea of father's day cards for the one little father to be card they had. wrote a heartfelt and utterly fab message within, gave it to the german on sunday with love. watched him open it. watched him read it. then watched him stare, for some time, at the card's cover. felt happy. he generally doesn't take THIS much time with cards. then...
"there are penises all OVER this card." he finally said aloud.
i was stunned. had no bloody idea what he meant.
i did not see this comment coming.
then he held the card out to me, "see! on the bottle, on the teddy bear..."
i stared long and hard, trying to decipher what he meant.
"oh, those! those are safety pins!" i said through tears, laughter and very little conviction.
eeek. they did look ridiculously phallic.
oh well, there's always next year, when he really IS a dad.
