Delectable daddy Dan

I wandered up to Sainsbury’s this afternoon, with my daughter strapped to my chest looking delightful. On my way there, I overheard quite an attractive young lady whispering to what I assume was her boyfriend.

“Men with babies are so attractive.”

I smiled broadly, taking the compliment as intended; she looked sheepish at having been overheard. I’m not sure whether the boyfriend looked pissed at her third party admiration, or petrified at the prospect of a conversation about their impending procreation.

She did have a point: I did look hot!

    you do realize, dan, that it’s the “with baby” part that is the attractive bit? 😉

    Dude (I use that term lightly – as you are clearly getting even less ‘dude’ like each day), if you must carry your offspring in a pouch, put it on your back, like nature intended. They can still look forward and see where you’re going, but you don’t look quiet such a dick and it’s better for your back.

    I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

    Elise: you’re wrong.
    Rob: in exactly what way were we intended to carry our offspring on our backs? Were we born with North Face rucksacks attached to our backs?
    Francis: glad to hear I’m responsible for bodily emissions from 3,500 miles away!

    i’d like to see proof of that.

    Dan, Elise is right – it was the ‘with babies’ thing, not you.

    Hence it was ‘men with babies’, not ‘that guy with the baby’.

    Although I doubt she would have said it if she thought you were an absolute minger, so you can at least take something from it…

    And Elise, on the proof thing, do you mean the front vs back thing, the vomit or both?
