...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?

Sure, no problem. Don't bother gassing it up. I'll take care of the fender.

2) My tuition is due..

No problem. Same thing happened to me when I was a boy. Boys will be boys.

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?

Did I ever tell you about your mother?

4) It would appear that a small portion of the house has been burgled/burnt/generally buggered/mysteriously urinated on...

Look, shit happens. When I burned my parent's home to the ground we all laughed, roasted marshmallows and made s'mores. It was a special moment.

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.

That's OK kid. Your romantic and erotic destiny is your own. (What's it like?)

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.

WHAT THE FUCK??!! Get out. Pack your shit and get the FUCK out of here. YOU are DEAD to me. DEAD. How could you DO this to me? After all I've sacrificed. Oh God, Jesus, where did I go wrong? What have I done...{weeps}....
