I read a Buzzfeed article today about 27 epic parenting fails.
Well I have number 28 to add to that list.
It’s exciting for me because I never really have anything relevant to add to talkback topics. My sister called into Triple J once to reveal her traumatic past with monkey’s, but that’s another story all together.
Cast your minds back to the mid 90’s, in a country town in Western Australia there is a little girl in bike pants with long brown hair and an insatiable curiosity.
Sitting outside one night she asks her father, “Dad, how do lighters work?”
Dad is excited, because he knows the answer, and he sees an opportunity to teach his daughter and cement his place as the number one man in her life for at least the next ten years.
So, he picks up his lighter and says to the girl, “The lighter is actually full of gas. You light it with a spark when you press the button. Here, you can smell the gas.”
He kneels down in front of his daughter intending to depress the button and let her smell the gas, but instead lights the fricking thing and burns the inside of her nose.
To this day I have trouble growing nose hairs.
Love you dad!
