DaftDaddy’s Killer Easter
After DaftDaddy’s self-inflicted food poisoning incident, I considered changing the name of this blog to DaftChef. But with the help of time, the color to my face has returned (white is a color – so shut it), as did my appetite. I did drop a couple of pounds from the food poisoning, but I doubt anyone was going to confuse me with Nicole Richie. But I quickly gained those pounds back over the Easter holiday weekend, as I consumed so much food even Takeru Kobayashi would have been impressed.
Jeni and I had a nice Easter brunch with my family during the day, and then we went to a posh restaurant with her family for Easter dinner that night. I love Jeni’s family. Her parents, Jim and Jeri, couldn’t be any nicer and any more generous. But the highlight of having dinner with Jeni’s family, or any event with her family for that matter, is spending time with her brother Greg. Greg is some big-shot financial planner in Beverly Hills, and he looks exactly like Dexter – with the exception he isn’t a serial killer – as far as I know.
Brother-in-laws can be a slippery slope if you’re not careful. It doesn’t matter how hard you try to get on their good side, at the end of the day he’s still gonna hate you because you’re sleeping with his sister. But he’s going to be a great uncle to wee Mac. DaftDaddy wants to remind all you new and used dads out there that it’s important to keep your in-laws happy while starting a new family. Especially ones that look (and hopefully don’t act) like Dexter!
