Any day now I will be a dad. Nothing new in the grand scheme of things,my own father became a dad too, many years ago, and I believe most male parents share this trait.
It means a lot to me of course...
Naturally I'll have to curtail my rampant drinking. I'll also have to pander to the whims of an infant. Lose sleep. Spend the rest of my life worrying about what the child is getting up to.
Of course it also means legitimately getting to watch shit like Pufnstuf all over again.
And dig out my old star wars toys for him when he's old enough to appreciate them... Perhaps his early 30's.
I can play him my music to see if he likes it. Although perhaps not introduce him to technical death metal in the first few weeks...
And I'll have to buck the trend of financial depletion - maybe I'll return to creating kids books instead of fetish porn.
Time will tell all.
