I AM being a Dad!

The Chief: "Should I give this to Buddha on a plate or in a bowl?"

Me: "Bowl."

The Chief: "Little white bowl or big white bowl?"

Me: "Big bowl."

The Chief: "How much should I give him?"

Me [exasperated now]: "I don't know, Chief! Just be a Dad and figure it out!"

*crickets chirping*

*uncomfortable drawn-out silence (except for the crickets, of course)*

*Liz feeling remorse*

The [witty] Chief: "What you don't realize is that I am being a Dad . . . by asking Mom."

Touché, my good man, touché. :D
