I lack the balance necessary to be a dad. Dads pick their kids up and put them on their shoulders. My body's already like a Jenga tower with most of the pieces missing. Placing a toddler on top of that can only lead to disaster.
Now put a wooden child on top.
One of my problems is that my wrists are so small. In utero, my daughter already has wrists close in size to mine. I don't wear watches because the only ones that will fit me would have to be bought at Justice. While it would be cute to have matching Father/Daughter pink sparkle watches, I'm not into it.
Dads wear Dockers or Brooks Brothers. I wear t-shirts with funny sayings and pictures on them.
Dads always have a tool belt on so they can fix things. The greeter at Home Depot asks me, "Are you sure?" when I enter.
Dads drink beer. I prefer beverages that end in "fizz."
Dads protect their daughters from unworthy suitors. I would spend most of the pre-date hoping they like me and find me funny.
Dads are expected to kill spiders and other bugs. I tell exterminators that I have their back and then run screaming out of the house and hole up in the nearest TCBY.
In conclusion, I'm not ready.
