Parents aren't known for being the most technologically literate. I've received countless wrong number texts from parents, and after i've had some fun with them, they usually notice their mistake pretty quickly. But Imgur user velakskin recently had a conversation with a mom who just wouldn't believe that the 35-year-old man wasn't her teenage daughter Jess.
After having some fun, he tried to explain that she'd gotten the wrong number...
But she just refused to believe it.
He even provided proof...
But that didn't help.
Took her long enough.
She just didn't want to believe it.
Growing up as a Muslim-Albanian family with very patriarchal ideas on the way a family is supposed to operate, my idea of what a father should be was a very "man's man" one.
He brings home the bacon, laughs maybe five times a year, and was really into Clint Eastwood and Martin Scorcese movies. Oh, and a Marlboro Red had to be perpetually hanging out the side of his mouth.
Fast forward years later and here I am, dadding it up, and I'm not that, like, at all. The manliest thing I probably do is hit the gym, bro, and not shave my chest hair. Other than that though, I'm nothing like the former generation of "guy's guys" that raised me. Which I'm totally cool with, because I'm already learning special hair braids to try out on my daughter once she gets older. Because her old man might be a North Jersey meathead, but he's going to be a meathead who doesn't mind having tea parties and getting his nails painted with his little girl.
