Sometimes I just enjoy being silly
This haiku comic comes from a story I tell my kids every time we go camping. It’s about an alien father and child who come to Earth in search of a legendary food called S—mores.
Even though my kids are much too old to find this story as funny as they did when they were younger, it still makes them smile.
Being silly is the part of fatherhood I’m best at.
I should note, that we do s’mores a bit differently. First, we usually use Reese’s peanut butter cups instead of chocolate bars. Next, half of us (including me) aren’t that fond of marshmallows so half of us don’t use them. Lastly, and this is the most important bit, we cook our s’mores in these wonderful metal cages so that everything melts perfectly, the graham crackers get lightly toasted, and nothing ever spills.
We use a version like this one:

Be the weird you want to see in the world!
