’The Four Horsemen’ cranked up on my radio. The roar of a V8 in the background. Watching the speedometer needle squeeze its way from 80 to 90 to 100.
-Last licks before Fatherhood
In the last few days before my son, Sam, was born on August 16, 2011, I decided to start posting some thoughts on my Facebook Wall about things I wouldn’t be able to do again after I became a father, and emotions I had about becoming a father. Not sure why I started doing it, but if I had to guess, it was because I needed an outlet for the intense emotions I felt in the most mundane circumstances. I affectionately signed these posts with the words “Last licks before Fatherhood” and continued posting till the day of Sam’s birth.
The responses I got to the posts were quite overwhelming. Perhaps they resonated with people on a variety of levels I have yet to fully comprehend.
This category of blog entries is the redux of the Facebook Wall posts. I hope they will make you smile, remember or look forward to what’s next in your life.
