Six Logansport. Indiana, Pharos-Tribune News and Views Have By Mary D'Andrea They say every dog has his day and Sunday it's Dad's turn. Yes, Mom, Sunday is Father's Day. You almost forgot, didn't you? Well, don't panic. You've got plenty of time to pick out that perfect gift for your imperfect guy. It seems we members of the fairest sex too often overlook Dad on his day, assuming that the big lug doesn't have an ounce of sentiment in him and he would just as soon • forget all gift- giving occasions. BUT THE TRUTH of the matter is, men don't like to show their feelings. They're embarrassed to let anyone, especially their wives, see them opening gifts in happy anticipation. • . Why is this? Well, when your husband' was a little' kid, he learned that boys who cry are' "sissies" and -to be called that was a fate worse than death. So he gave up crying. Even when he took a beating in "friendly" neighborhood fights or broke his leg or got conked on the head with a baseball bat ... he did not cry. He became a man, got- married and had kids. (He's got .lots of reasons to cry.) And when you and the off-spring present Dad with a beautifully-wrapped package containing that very expensive something he's wanted for -a long time, he probably feels a hot tear somewhere up there above the eyeball. But instinctively, he blinks it away because little boys and men don't cry or even look like they're going to. NATURALLY, since tears and sentimentality go hand in hand, we assume these hard-hearted males have traded the soft spot in the heart for a,big one in the head. • It just isn't so.' Dad likes to get presents but he's become used to being overlooked. But remember, how hurt YOU were last year when he forgot your anniversary? Did you storm and rant... did you threaten divorce because he didn't love you anymore . . . did you pout for three days . . . did you go on a shopping spree to get even . . . well, yes, as a matter of fact, you did. Remember? Just imagine how hurt he was when you "forgot" his birthday. He didn't say a word because gifts are sentimental things and men aren't supposed to be sentimental, and the whole thing goes back to childhood. BUT, IN SPITE of the childhood bit (if you don't like something, you can always blame it on your childhood) the truth boils down to this—men simply don't like to shop for women's gifts. After a couple of trips to a lingerie counter (coming away with frilly black things and red faces) they've had it. That's why the little woman ends up with a check on a "few dollars" to "buy yourself something because I don't know what you want . . ." With women, it's different. Men's stores and the apparel therein don't embarrass us in the least. Besides, shopping is our favorite hobby. So go to it, Mom. Get him something really nice. AND, BY THE WAY, that old saying about it's not what you pay for the gift but the thought that counts is just so much hot air. Maybe you got by with it the first year of married bliss but after that hubby probably feels like strangling you with his umpteenth pair of socks or the millionth lie that won't be worn. So, get something different. I don't know what, but something out of the ordinary. What am I giving? Oh, I always give him money. I don't know what in the world to buy. PREVIEW OF THINGS TO COME-What do you think happens to a married man who is suddenly thrust into the role of bachelor once again when the little woman lakes a vacation without him? How does he manage when he can't even boil water much less an egg? How can he possibly figure out the dials on an automatic washer when he. can't even find the outlet for the electric coffee pot? We'll let you know. Bye for now. Thursday Evening, June 14,'1962.
