This morning I was reading one of my favorite NYTimes columnists, Nicholas Kristof. He gave some great ideas for Father's Day Gifts. For Mother's Day I gave a "birthing kit" in honor of my mom so I decided I would do something similar for my dad. (Thanks for reminding me, Kristof.)
I chose to buy my dad a Hero Rat! These rats are trained to find land mines so that children don't. So it's macho and kind at the same time, and very fitting for my dad.
