Rules about dating my daughter
The shifts aren’t jarring because ultimately this is a collection about parenthood.Global issues like environmental change are made to feel personal, now that Dawson is responsible for two young lives.He asks that anyone who wants to date his daughter should, “Paint the house, mend some fence, cut the lawn, rope a tornado, bottle up a hurricane, and put out a forest fire w/ a squirt gun.” But the heart of his message is a very serious one, and it is, I believe, why the post has become so popular.
Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose his compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object.Let me elaborate: when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.Rule Five: In order for us to get to know each other, you may think we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on his subject is "early."Rule Six: I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls.Rule Two: You do not touch my daughter in front of me.You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck.
