Advice for Desmond Hatchett

If there was a guy who needs a copy of The Single Father’s Guide to Life, Cooking, and Baseball, I think it would be Knoxville, Tennessee resident Desmond Hatchett, who has reportedly fathered 30 children with 11 different women: Tennessee Man Has 30 Kids. Heck, if someone has Desmond’s mailing address, I’ll send him a promotional copy!

Apparently, Desmond has taken Hammerin’ Hank’s philosophy to heart:

“My motto was always keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging.” –Henry Aaron

I can’t imagine what breakfast at the Hatchett house looks like! Just to make Daddy’s Chocolate Chip and Strawberry Cookie Pancakes, Desmond would need 14 cups of whole wheat flour, 2 2/3 cups of soy flour, 12 cups of strawberries, 24 cups of milk, at least 16 eggs, 4 cups of chocolate chips, and, among other ingredients, the staff from Waffle House to cook and serve!
What would be this single father’s advice to Desmond? "GOLDEN RULE #15: It should be the exception that you introduce your children to your romantic interest, and do so only if you are reasonably certain there is potential for a relatively long-term relationship!"
