Remember all the times I said, “I forgot”?
I really did.
Remember all the times I said, “It was like that when I found it”?
Remember all the jars you opened, spiders you killed, things you fixed, monsters you slayed and oil changes you took care of?
Mom and I have talked, and we’ve decided it’s time you did something for you. No, not fishing with your buddies. I mean, that’s nice. But we were thinking about something, well, a little “more.”
Have you ever thought about upgrading the boat?
We know you love that old boat. But, can we be honest? It’s sort of seen better days. OK. There’s no sort of about. It has! So it’s time.
The carpet is, well, gross. A new vinyl floor would look great, and be a heck of a lot easier to clean. Plus, it’s slip-resistant, so you won’t take a spill.
We know you like to take the boat out for a little night fishing, from time to time, too. But it can be hard to see everything you need to, out on the water in the dark. Add some LED lights in just the right places, and you won’t have any trouble finding your tackle. Or your snacks.
One of our favorite things about the boat is the bimini top. But the straps have become really worn. Maybe some new ones?
We hate to break it to you, but those boat seats? We don’t want to sit on them anymore. You can only hide so much with a beach towel, Dad. It’s time to invest in a new set of seats. You won’t regret it.
So what do you say, Dad? Are you ready to upgrade the boat? You can still take your friends out fishing, too. Just, maybe, check with mom first.
Happy Father’s Day!Love, Your Kid
