The beginning of these posts is usually reserved for stories about me being an inept father.
This week, I’m going to change it up.
No, I didn’t suddenly become a better dad, I just had the pleasure of interviewing one.
Please go check out my interview with Kolt Codner. He ran a marathon around a hospital to raise money for the facility caring for his young son with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
It’s a great story and Kolt is a solid dude.
Ok, back to shenanigans. Here are the best memes and tweets from dads this week.

Me: There's a Nerd in my shoe.
Wife: There's a nerd in both of your shoes.
I don't deserve this.

14yo daughter: Dad, what does fashionably late mean?
Me: It means you really don’t want to go but feel obligated to make an appearance so no one’s feelings get hurt.
14 yo: I’m going to be fashionably late to math class.

I set up an obstacle course for the kids in the backyard this morning. After taking a spill, my son cried out, "I'M NEVER EXERCISING AGAIN!" As a father, I want to foster traits of perseverance and determination, but man, it feels good to finally share life goals with my boy.

When you’re married with kids a “quicky” is when you sneak off to the bathroom to eat a snack.

Call your dad now and ask him what the wifi password is so he has time to find the little paper it's written on before Thanksgiving.
