The shaving

Today I did what I guess is kind of a rite of passage for most fathers:  I showed my son how to shave.  He's been getting a pretty serious moustache shadow.  As I told him, he didn't get it from me; I didn't have to shave until I was 18 or so, and he's only 12.  And even then, I was hard-pressed to need it more than once every two weeks or so.

I didn't go through any such a thing with my own dad.  As with most things I've done in my life, I never asked for advice or talked about anything.  When I decided that something should be done, I just did it.  Which, now that I look back on it, must have made me an endless source of surprise for my parents.  Heh.
