The Favorite Son Saga: Even Cooler Than You, Dad

Spent a great Thanksgiving with some great friends who have an 18 year old son, Mike, who is a senior at the local high school. As boys are apt to do, The Favorite Son (TFS) and Mike played video games for most of the day.

As we were about to leave after eating plenty of turkey and watching a lot of football, Mike asked me if he could give TFS one of his video games to take home with him. I say, "Yes."

On the ride home, TFS could hardly contain his excitement.

TFS: Dad, do you know why Mike gave me that game?

Me: No, Boss. Why?

TFS: Well, first, he had two.

Me: Yeah?

TFS: Yeah, and second, he's really cool, Dad, even cooler than you!

The takeaway?

My son thinks I'm cool. I'll take it.
