19 Signs You're Not The Mom Friend, You're The DAD Friend

Step over, mom. There's a new 'parent friend' in town.

19 Signs You're Not The Mom Friend, You're The DAD Friend
Warner Bros. Television

We all know the mom friend of the group. She texts to make sure you make it home safely, always has a water bottle for you, and probably is far more comfortable hitting the sack at 10 p.m. than going out and drinking.

Well, step aside, mom friend. There's a new cool parent in town and it's me: The dad friend.

1. You make dad jokes constantly

*Leaving your apartment with your friends to go downtown* "Got your wallet? Got your phone? Got your head? HA!"

2. You offer to eat everyone's unfinished food

If you see a slice of pizza just lingering on your friend's plate, untouched, you will offer to eat it.

3. You know at least 2 "dad tasks" and your friends request your help with them

Car needs to be jumped? Who you gonna call? DAD FRIEND.

4. If you've been to the area literally once, you will go rogue with no GPS

"Let's just go without the GPS. I'm sure we'll find it, my parents drove through here 7-8 years ago on the way to vacation."

5. You read the newspaper

You can certainly enjoy news digitally, but you appreciate a publication with your sports and your obituaries in the same place.

6. You nap wherever, whenever

Being found napping in a recliner at 2 o'clock in the afternoon? Total dad move.

7. You have never ordered a salad in your life

And your excuse is probably something to the effect of, "Well, we're all going to die anyway."

8. You are a huge fan of at least one sports team

You've got the apparel and you actually watch their games and follow their season.

9. You have a hard time keeping up with the "teen lingo"

You find yourself checking out a lot of vocabulary on UrbanDictionary.

10. ...You call it "teen lingo"

Though you may be a few years past being a teen, you still refer to "those teens" (or those whippersnappers, for our grandfather friends) as if it was at least a decade ago.

11. You are very huggable

Everybody raves about your hugs, but only a select few get to enjoy them.

12. You think you're a great dancer. Nobody else thinks that.

If anyone ever said, "Hey, you're a good dancer!" your first response would be, "No, I'm *insert name here*" and then say "I know!"

13. Everything you look forward to revolves around food

"Can't wait to go watch this movie! Going to get some candy and popcorn."

"Can't wait to go visit grandma! They're going to order pizza!"

"Can't wait to go to the BMV! It's right next to a McDonald's!"

14. You vet your friends' boyfriends and threaten them if they do wrong by you

You're about one kid and a "Dads Against Daughters Dating" shirt away from holding a rifle in some prom pictures.

15. You are more of an, "Eh, let's just see what happens," kind of person

Boo to the mom friends who try to "protect your safety. "I think its a great idea for you, 14 shots in, to jump up on the bar and perform a dance number.

16. A lot of people don't get your dry sense of humor

You try your best, but sometimes your hilarious jokes don't land. Oh well, the people whose opinions you actually care about will get them.

17. The passenger seat in your car is more than likely not clean

Old receipts, cups and various garbage probably litter the passenger seat floor. Your friends are used to a little crunch under their feet when they get in.

18. Your perfect footwear is either a plain sandal or a closed toe tennis shoe

Heels = hell. Give me a pair of Crocs and I'll be fine.

19. You don't always tell the people you love that you love them, but you always show it

Your friend-ing style may be more based in tough love, but dads have been doing it for decades so clearly it works.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
