Perfect families are an each-to-their-own proposition. One man’s fish is another man’s poisson.
It could be a Curb Setter. Or a Golden Lap Sitter, tho it’s a lil small for that one.
Talk about deflating the ego! But, ya gotta give him credit, the first thing he said, was that he was married! Good for you, Adam!
