Redeployment Is Not An Option

Who’s Your Daddy?

It’s coming up fast, and you’ve probably put it off for too long-that’s right; Father’s Day is coming!  Fear not, for I have just the solution for all of you last minute Father’s Day shoppers.  You know that a bottom of the barrel card selection from the Dollar Store isn’t going to cut it, besides, Dad deserves more than just a card, right? Right!

My friends at RedEnvelope.com have made it easy for you to pick out a quality gift for your Dad and look like a hero while doing it.  Just visit their Father’s Day Gift Page and choose from a wide variety of gifts.  You can get everything from a Home brewery set to cuff links, valets, MLB coasters to every BBQ accessory you can think of.  Full disclosure requires me to inform you that I was compensated for this endorsement, so I’ll go you one better and show you my compensation.  I chose one of Red Envelopes valets.  I had a good reason for doing so.  Here is a picture of how I used to store all of the things that go in my pockets and then come out of my pockets on a daily basis.

THE BLACK HOLE

THE BLACK HOLE

Pretty sad, huh?  Everything just tossed in the front of the catch-all drawer in the kitchen.  It took me almost 5 minutes to find my car keys one day because one of the NukeKids had been in the drawer looking for AA batteries.  They didn’t find any batteries, but they managed to “lose” my keys.  I found them in the back in an envelope for a time share offer that should have been tossed out years ago.  Everyone has a drawer like this in their home; the “Black Hole” or “Bermuda Triangle” drawer where things disappear for years on end whenever you need them, only to re-appear when you’re looking for something else.  Then you go back later for it and it’s disappeared once again.  Well, no more for the NukeDad-I’m organized now.  Check this out.

ORDER IS RESTORED

ORDER IS RESTORED

Same items neatly placed in my new personalized valet that will sit above the old catch-all drawer and allow me the piece of mind that my car keys will never be lost again.  Pop on over to RedEnvelope.com and pick out something for your Dad for Father’s Day; there’s still plenty of time to get your order in and bring a smile to Dad’s face on Father’s Day.  Let’s face it, there is such a thing as too many neckties.  Enter the code 10offred  (Ten off Red) at checkout and receive 10% off of your order.  Tell them NukeDad sent you.

    Hmmmm, “everything from a Home brewery set to cuff links” is awfully close to:
    “Everything from novelties like a beer holster to cuff links” sounds mighty familiar. =)
    That’s okay. I know that it wasn’t intentional or anything, I’m just glad that you are posting and now I can tease you about trying to emulate your favorite blogger of all time.
    I am honored by your hero worship.

    (NukeDad) Wow, I hope you didn’t throw your shoulder out patting yourself on the back! You’re free to believe whatever you like, but plagiarism was the furthest thing from my mind. I just wanted to list some of the awesome gifts available on http://www.redenvelope.com/fathers-day-gifts-rfdfv

    Very nice valet!

    You put your stuff in the junk drawer?!? (Our version of the catch-all drawer.) Why would you do that? It’s almost a guarantee that something vital will be lost. And, really, all that stuff goes into your pockets? Glad I have a purse to stuff all my junk into. :D

    So glad you have a place all your own to put your stuff.

    (NukeDad) Not EVERYTHING in the first picture went in my pockets-and usually only MOST of what’s in the valet goes in my pockets; the MP3 player doesn’t always make the cut. I also would put it all in the FRONT of the drawer and would only be perplexed when the NukeKids would mix stuff up.

    The one thing I’ve had a hard time organizing is my Skoal. I see you have Copenhagen there; can I substitute Skoal instead? What if I decide to switch to the pouch?

    Anyway – this is awesome. I’m going to have to forward a little suggestion to Michael’s Mommy.

    (NukeDad) Tom, Skoal is interchangeable with the Copenhagen. Any gum in a round package will fit as well. If you switch to a pouch, I’d suggest putting that in the upper portion of the valet. Hope you get what you ask for on Father’s Day!

    Very nice! (the After, not the Before)

    What I’m wondering is, where do you store the suspenders that you would obviously need to wear in order to keep your pants from falling down, from the weight of all that stuff in your pockets?

    (NukeDad) It wasn’t EVERYTHING in the drawer, sheesh! I donated all of my suspenders to Larry King when he made the move to CNN years ago.

    What full pockets you have! Maybe you should think about carrying a man-purse. ;)

    (NukeDad) A Man-purse? You mean a “European Shoulderbag?” Not a chance on either; I’ll stick with my shorts, thank you. :)

    I know that if you ever were to plagiarize, you would have enough taste to borrow from an actual decent writer.
    No accusations here, just pure harassment.

    (NukeDad) We’re all good; I know you were just ribbing me-no problema.
