Diary Comic 9/6/14 Getting my daughter to ride her bike

The part where I lose my temper isn’t the part that ever goes up on Facebook.

I can’t remember who it was (maybe Dylan Horrocks?), but I saw someone saying that one way to look at Social Media is to think of your Facebook/Twitter presence as like your role-playing game avatar - a character you have created and maintain in the campaign of living a life online. My Facebook character is an easy going fun-loving Dad. He does very well in the ongoing quest to get lots of like and comments.

Keep this in mind, folks. Don’t hold yourself to an unrealistic standard. There is no standard.

I’ve had a few people tell me I don’t look like a dad. I’m not really sure what that means. What does a father look like?
I prefer to look at fatherhood as a lens than rather than a look or an age. Every dad cares for his children with his own style of love and ferocity. Some of the greatest, most engaged fathers I know look nothing alike.
Children can level a man. And they can build him up to near invincibility.
But we all look a little tired. I’ll give you that. At least I do.

While Listening To Mozart

Me:
You know what I love about classical music, guys? It's really dramatic.

Boone:
What's dramatic mean?

Me:
Like, it puts pictures in your head, it's full of crazy emotion.

Boone:
Wyatt's really dramatic.

ONE MORE TIME! (Hopefully, minus the technical difficulties.)

improvisingfatherhood:

E-MPROV.com presents Improvising Fatherhood - an improv show about the comedy of being a dad.

I’m excited to re-announce that I will be hosting a live comedy show on the Internet this Sunday. The show will feature popular Dad bloggers Charlie Capen and Andy Herald, authors of www.HowToBeADad.com, and David Vienna, author of www.theDaddyComplex.com

The show will also feature NY-based improvisers Doug Moe, author of www.manvchild.com, and Josh Eakright (Second City, iO Chicago, UCBNY).

We’ll discussing the topic of fatherhood and answering any questions you might have for us. Then we will use that discussion to inspire improv comedy.

Tweet your questions to @howtobeadad, @thedaddycomplex, and @improvfather using the hashtag #EMPROV 

Sunday, September 7th, at 9pm PST on www.E-MPROV.com
