Why is it?

That there is always that one buddy you've known forever that knows a lot of the stupid crap you did when you were younger and has to tell your boys all that stuff.

Like, "Ask your dad how long it takes to get motorcycle tire burnout marks off the auditorium stage."

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    yeah and I cringe every time he comes over. He has way too much information that he just loves to share.

    I can't wait until my friends' kids get older so I can be that guy. Oh the stories we could tell...

    I don't have to worry about that, I spent my formative years going between the chapel and the library... Not!  I look back in horror at what I did in my teen years, I just never got caught.

    Having six sons, I never appreciate old friends bringing them up to date on Dad's youthful escapades.

    Fortunately we moved away from all of my childhood friends. I get to tell the stories to my boys but leave out some of the important parts.

    I can get past the stories told to my child, it's the wife's reaction that makes me cringe, 'cuz she didn't know me then.

    You mean like when Dad was chewing my ass about the evils of pot and crazy Uncle Carl chimed in "But, Pete, don't you remember how we used to go to the Mexican Mercado in L.A. when we were kids and buy a handful of leaves and roll them up in newspaper?"

    Course, Dad spluttered denial.

    Man, I'm so glad I lived such a squeaky-clean life. Now I don't have to worry about things like talkative friends, etc...    :p
