NBC Boycott

I will boycott NBC if they run one more commercial for Parenthood that hints at masturbation or women 'faking it' or any other sexual in nature theme before 10 pm!

I understand this is a rather minor threat because I probably only watch 2 hours of NBC's prime time lineup a week because of their overall suckitude but I would prefer the demon child not ask me to explain what faking means?

Wife cracked down on me last week and said I can't delegate all the explaining to her with a "Your her father you're going to have to deal with her growing up!" emphasis.
(For waffles only: Take note of grammatical difference in 'your' and 'you're')

My explanation was halted by daughter, I reported question to wife and she will explain today, if she understands what faking means.

Technically "you're" would be correct in both places, but perhaps this is some slight at Waffles, in which case I approve.

Have you ever considered that demon child may be delighting in your obvious uncomfortableness and exacerbates the situation by asking seemingly innocent questions? I know that's what I'd do if I were her.

I agree with DrChako - I have no doubt DC knows exactly what it means.

Waffles never uses the apostrophe, I did 1st one wrong to see if he would catch.

It is well established that the child takes delight in tormenting me. Saturday night she showed me her new clothes and took special delight in showing me her new bras.

She also is not timid about telling me she really likes what she is wearing because it 'shows off her curves'.

I was her favorite parent until she was 5. My working long hours at start-ups shifted my rankings downward.

At this point she is unwilling to say I am her 'favorite male parent'.

I think some questions are legit and most are to torment me, the only way I can tell difference is if I hear the evil laugh to end conversation.

"it's quarter after one, I'm a little drunk and I need you now"...

I am always available for explanations to your DC daughter. Who knows in this crazy world I could be your son in law in like 8 years!

It's no worse than when our 12 year old asked what "wet dreams" were after watching 50 First Dates. Although my discomfort was less about the subject and more that it still makes me want to giggle that men have to go through such absolute lack of control over their genitalia. :)
