Dad. Papa. Pop-Pop. Whatever your name is for him, all he wants for you is a quick phone call, to be left alone, and to have a coupla crispy boys while watching TV.  So just remember, when you ask him "What do you want for Fathers' Day?" and he says, "Nothing." he means it. He wants nothing. Not even more than maybe 30 minutes with you, and then spend the rest of the time fondly remembering the time before he even had kids. (Is that too harsh?)

A new survey asked dads what they want the most for Father's Day, and here are the results . . .

1.  A phone call from my kids, 47%.

2.  A big steak, 41%.

3.  Some peace and quiet, 38%.

4.  Watching a baseball game with the family, 38%.

5.  A few beers, 35%.

6.  A cheap, practical gift like socks or a tie, 35%.

7.  A glass of wine, 34%.

8.  To watch whatever I want on TV, 34%.

9.  A glass of whiskey, 29%.

10.  An expensive physical gift, like an Apple watch, 29%.
