...it seems the wonderful old bastard actually knows what he's talking about most of the time.

Not sure, but I think that I am the wonderful old bastard, with one kid at 21 and the other about to turn 18.

I hope I'm getting something right. And not too much wrong.

Based on my experience of you as a poster, not a father, I'd guess you were doing a great job and the ratio was about right. I shall of course ask some relevant leading questions. In this hypothetical scenario I am playing your 21 year old son:

1) Can I borrow the car?

2) My tuition is due, I have mysteriously come up short due to a "miscalculation" (and not a party of any kind), please can I "borrow" $3000 to cover the shortfall? What are the terms of any such "loan"?

3) This is Mwewe Katanga {click click derk} Hussein my fiancee. Will you refer to our (future) children as any of the following: a) the half breeds, b) mongrels, c) any culturally appropriate generic racial slur or d) none of the above, perish the very thought?

4) It would appear that a small portion of the house has been burgled/burnt/generally buggered/mysteriously urinated on after you have been away for the weekend. I, of course, have not had any parties and vehemently deny any accusation of wrong doing. Do you a) look me closely in the eye and point out that you did not fall of the top of a Christmas tree and that little will be said as long as the problem is rectified, b) liberally grass me up to mother, c) never speak to me again and boot me from the premises, d) other?

5) I come out as gay, your reaction is: a) marvellous, I need help with interior design, b) get thee hence from my sight foul and odious pervert, never darken my door again, c) initial silence then snide comments for eternity coupled with leaflets advertising "cures", d) I'm glad you said that son, there's something I've been meaning to tell you..., e) other.

6) I come out as a creationist, your reaction is: a) marvellous, I need help with....well nothing actyually you go for it my lad, b) get thee hence from my sight foul and odious pervert, never darken my door again, c) a series of informative, corrective science lessons, d) I'm glad you said that son, there's something I've been meaning to tell you..., e) other.

Thanks in advance.

Louis

Bye.
