[Did you] call your dad on Father’s Day before posting a photo of him on Facebook
Your dad doesn’t care how many likes you collect on Instagram or Facebook. Just pick up the phone and call the guy.
Listen, I get it — you want to show all your friends what a total stud your dad was in his 20s or share a cute childhood, family photo where you look completely adorable and your sister is in peak awkward stage.
But before you post a photo on social media, let him hear your voice.
He wants to talk to you, not spend 30 minutes trying to figure out how Instagram works, only to see 12 “❤️❤️❤️omg so cute!” comments from people he doesn’t know.
You might say “but I don’t have much to talk to my dad about.” Have you ever talked to an 8-year-old? They say some stupid things and your dad used to listen to you talk all the time. As a kid, I spent hours explaining my high-level thoughts about American Gladiators, and you know what? He just listened (and then took me to Costco for a $1 hot dog).
Even better than just talking? Ask him a question. Ask him about his day, his life, the latest season of Blue Bloods, whatever — you’ll learn something. And maybe you’ll discover an even better story to share about him for the ‘gram.
