Thoughts on “Dad Bod”

I think it was a year or two ago when the term “thigh gap” was all the rage. It seemed I couldn’t log onto any of my social media accounts or peruse the internet without being bombarded by the phrase. The premise was pretty dumb. Women (not all of them mind you) were transfixed by… Read more
