I read today that in a recent poll a lot of people compared their dad to Peter Griffin from The Family Guy. It seems they consider their dad to be cuddly, loveable and great for a laugh, just like Peter Griffin.
20th Century Fox asked 1,000 Aussies aged from 18 to 44 which TV dad was most like their own. The choices were:
– Peter Griffin from The Family Guy
– Benjamin Franklin ‘Hawkeye’ Pierce from M*A*S*H
– Seeley Booth from Bone
– Jack Bauer from 24
How about you? What television or movie character best sums up your dad and why? Can you identify with any of the choices they gave or does another character remind you of your dad?
It was Father’s Day in Australia yesterday. It’s a day celebrated right around the world at different times during the year.
So how was my Father’s Day? It’s become a pretty mixed day for me. Overall it was brilliant and I was truly spoiled by my amazing family but there were those moments that I thought about how I miss my own dad who passed away several years back. I often wish he was still around to share my life.
I also thought about a good friend of mine who passed away a year ago, just before Father’s Day 2009. I miss him terribly but I know that his children would have been feeling that pain a whole lot more yesterday as they thought about a wonderful dad who’s gone way too soon.
I suppose that those mixed feelings should serve as a reminder for all of us to make the most of the time we have today and to ensure we don’t just wait for days like birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and the like to tell the people close to us that we love them.
