“Dad its about time you had a forfeit.”

****Hawklad knows me far too well. If you fancy beating someone at a challenge then I’m your man****

That’s assuming Son that you can beat your Dad.

That’s a given Dad”

Ok I’m on a losing streak which is running well over 7 years. But maybe today is MY day. So what am I going to beat you at. FIFA, Kerplunk, Top Trumps, Table Football. Maybe even a race – remember your recovering from an operation (**** what an awful parent that makes me sound like ****).

No Dad let’s do something completely different. Let’s pick a word and if I can get you to say it this afternoon – then I win.”

I’ve got this. What’s the word going to be? How about Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (****didn’t sound anything like that in my several attempts to say it*****).

No, how about we make it interesting and make it something like Mmmmmmm”

Ok that’s a deal.


Dad where did we see Hollywood Vampires play?”

That was Manchester.

Ha that was easy Mmmmmmanchester.”

I’m not having that Hawklad. Doesn’t count.


Dad which band did Ace of Spades?”

That’s Motรถrhead.

Got you. Mmmmmmotorhead.”

No no no, not having that.


Dad what is the best comic book movie Universe?”

Definitely Marvel

So easy, Mmmmmmmarvel”

No no no no no. Just No Hawklad.


But finally I cracked. The Force is not strong with this Jedi Knight.

Dad I’m starving, do you fancy a Chinese takeout?”

Mmmmmmmmm Mushroom Foo Yung. Mmmmmmmmmm Beancurd in Black Bean Sauce.

Got you properly that time Dad.”

Pants…. So I take it that you don’t want a takeaway meal then.

Of course not Dad.

Ok Hawklad, what’s my forfeit then?

Dad Tomorrow I’m going to make you a special drink in the kitchen. Let’s see what interesting ingredients I can find. Bet you won’t be saying Mmmmmmmm after you drink that.”

No I kinda figured that. Unless it’s ‘Phone me a Mmmmmmedic”

      1. Hmmm… three times over. Let me check…. Don’t have a clue how to measure smiles… this one is hard! Might be 2 and 3/4. Or 2 and 5/8. Ya probably closer to 2 and 5/8 ๐Ÿ˜€

      2. ๐Ÿ˜€ Okay Superdad I have to go finish being Cinderella for the day and then I need to go for my walk. Maybe I will run some steps. I think I’ve started a trend though. I saw three young people running up and down the steps the other day and as I was doing my steps some lady passed me and said, good idea. I should do this. I’m such a trend setter. ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Yeah, those words that start with “M” don’t count. Not really nice of Hawklad to bring up yummy food when the grocery delivery hasn’t had your options either. I think he cheated.๐Ÿค” You should only have to take one drink of whatever he concocts๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜†

    He doesn’t even know how lucky he is to have such an awesome dad… but we do! You rock!๐Ÿ’Œ
