teaching an old dog new tricks

My Dad celebrated his birthday last week and each year my two siblings, myself and our spouses try to meet my Dad for a birthday dinner. Typically this evolves into a birthday pub crawl before dinner, sometimes it’s a weekend affair. This year we converged on my Dad’s house early Saturday afternoon and proceeded to wander through a few Irish pubs on our way to dinner. During the process of this revelry we were actually able to introduce my father to a few brand new things:

– Irish Car Bombs (which involves a shot of Jameson’s & Bailey’s dropped into a half pint of Guinness)

– CeeLo Green’s hit F**K You (my new favorite sing-it-loud song)

– Old School (the movie with Will Ferrel, Vince Vaughn and Luke Wilson)

All three of these things brought some gasps of surprise and plenty of laughter. They certainly created some memories and while they may not have been quality life lessons – they were quality fun. It’s nice to know you can learn new things no matter how old you get 😉
