“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
