Jump up on the couch, you'll have the high ground!


No need to clarify. I have authority on this matter. My dad bailed on us. My "step dad" stepped up. He is dad. The other guy is Dale.


This will be a core memory for this young man. Good on you for making happy memories with him!


You may not be the father, but you sure as hell are dad. Godspeed


If you're going to use Form II (Makashi) like that with longer arms, he really ought to switch to a more powerful form, like V (Djem So) to counter you. Foolish padawan.


I see your Schwartz is as big as mine


If he calls you dad just call him son is my thought.


So wholesome. I love it.


"I cut your entire body in half, now go seethe meditate in your bed and go the hell to sleep"


Good job Dad! :)
