25 Things That Every Dad Does

Yes, it IS a dad thing.

25 Things That Every Dad Does

If there is one thing dads are into, it’s the dad jokes and one-liners they all somehow know. In the spirit of Father’s Day, the best thing to do for my dad and all the dads out there is a list of what they all have in common. Brace yourselves for some corny dad jokes.

1. His go-to outfit for any occasion is his overalls.

The more protests he gets from you, the more determined he is to wear them.

2. When he hears a rap song and tries to rap along.

Which means repeatedly saying “yo yo yo” and “fo shizzle.”

3. If it looks like it's about to storm, you can find him mowing the lawn.

With middle fingers ablaze to the sky.

4. When the fridge is open, dad knows. Always.

He either appears out of thin air to close it or yells from outside to close the fridge.

5. The infamous first thing he says to you on your birthday EVERY year.

“Do you feel any different?”

6. If he finds half empty water bottles left around the house, expect a hunt.

He will find the culprit and take away their water bottle privileges.

7. He must test out all the chairs in the store.

“Just to make sure it’s good enough.”

8. The yard is another child to him.

It gets attention just like his human children.

9. When you ask him something, he refuses to come up with the final decision.

He says “Go ask your mother” usually before you even finish your statement.

10.Scheduling his work day around his poops.

Because why do something for free when you can get paid to do it?

11. Parking with dad is his way of showing off.

He backs into every spot. Every. Time.

12. He yells if you don’t go up the isles in a parking lot.

If you drive through the isles he says, “If there were cars parked in those spots, you could have hit them all.” OK, dad.

13. Instead of waking you up the normal way, he opens your bedroom door and vacuums outside your door.

You were in the deepest REM sleep, but then the vacuum ruined it.

14. He owns an expensive musical instrument.

But doesn’t know how to play more than a few lines of a song.

15. You will pay the consequences if you ask dad for a ride somewhere.

He will roll down the windows and blare the classic rock when he drops you off anywhere.

16. He guards the thermostat with his life.

It’s not a game for you to mess with and he makes that known.

17. If no one is listening to him he says something really out of the box to get everyone’s attention.

“So, guys did you hear about the submarine on I-71 that killed 50 people?”

18. He blames everyone for the lost remote.

Even though the majority of the time he was the last one to use it.

19. He prefers to sit at restaurant tables with a view of his truck.

Anytime someone walks past it7 he sets the alarm off on it so they get away from it. "Subtle" is not in his vocabulary.

20. Washing and waxing the truck bi-monthly.

And cursing the earth when the first dirt particle gets on it.

21. Asking whoever gets up first at dinner to get him another beer.

We rotate days.

22. Being able to quote at least one movie word for word at every given moment.

No matter the situation.

23. Falling asleep while watching the big game.

After he demanded the remote from the kids to change the channel.

24. Pumping the breaks at every stop light.

To the beat of the classic rock song blaring on the radio.

25. Coming in the house after 15 minutes of low-intensity yard work profusely sweating.

Then again within the hour with sunburn.

Despite his dad jokes and his constant attempts to embarrass you in any public situation you can’t help but love him because he’s the best dad out there.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

I'll admit it, when I first met you, I wasn't sure how well things were going to work out. Although I didn't know you that well at the time, we seemed to be opposites in almost every way. You were cool, edgy, and laid-back, and I was more awkward, goofy, and anxious.

If I Unfriend You During The 2020 Election, Yes, It's Personal

President Donald Trump and Joe Biden's plans for Black America matter.

The Black Lives Matter movements have sparked widespread conversations and protests across the nation. With justice not being served for the murders of innocent Black people like Breonna Taylor and absolutely no support from President Donald Trump, this upcoming election is quite important.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Air Travel Looks Different Now

If you have to travel, you can — you just have to take a few extra steps.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

As we are learning how to live our lives in the midst of a pandemic, one big question being travel. States that were initially labeled coronavirus (COVID-19) epicenters, like New York and New Jersey, are extra cautious in how freely residents can travel and then come home. Other states may not have the same travel restrictions as the epicenters, but one thing is for sure — no matter where you fly within the United States, that trip will look different than your usual summer vacation. Sure, it can still happen, you just need to take a few more steps to make sure your trip will go smoothly.

I've seen too many people faking various conditions to claim that they cannot wear face masks right now. Often, the claim is asthma and other breathing conditions. I figured it's time for people to hear from those who actually have these conditions. Not only are these people at a higher risk for serious complications after contracting COVID-19, but many of them also have been wearing face masks before this pandemic began. Take my mom, for example. As someone with damaged lungs, she has been using face masks for years. For those with compromised lungs, face masks protect from bad air-quality, dust, and other hazardous things that can be breathed in.

I figured hearing the facts from the source is the best way to hinder the spread of false information. I interviewed my mom about what life is really like for those with compromised lungs during this pandemic.
