Drawings Which Borderline Demean Me

Coloring pencils? Or esteem-piercing daggers? Could go either way, really.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, yet the picture of me that I’ve posted after the jump left me with just two.

Holy. Shit.

Because that’s how bad it is. I mean, seriously, it’s borderline demeaning. And what’s even worse? It was friendly fire in that my beautiful stepdaughter is the one who drew it. (I’ve blogged about it before in a post called Donuts with Dads.) But I’ve decided to turn that frown upside down by increasing the exposure of the embarrassing rendering.

How, you might ask? By including it in a new piece I just wrote for Babble in honor of Father’s Day. Because who wouldn’t look at this debacle and immediately think Father’s Day?

Admit it. I'm hot, aren't I?

I hope you’ll take a second to see how it worked out for me by reading the piece over at Babble. Once you’re done laughing at me, that is.

John Cave Osborne is a writer whose work has appeared on such sites as DisneyBaby, Babble, YahooShine, TLC and the Huffington Post. He was also referenced by Jezebel one time, but he’s pretty sure they were making fun of him. He and his wife, Caroline, live with their five children and spastic dog in Knoxville, TN. Nothing annoys him more than joke-heavy bios written in the third person, with the possible exception of Corey Feldman.
