D is for Dad

Over the summer, the Atlantic asked its readers to explain this: What is it about your job that other people just don’t understand?

From A to Z, we went through your responses to find the best vocational essays for each letter. These essays are as short as a short sentence and as long as an full article

Now, here, by the Atlantic’s criteria, is the best response they received for the letter D:

D is for Dad
“Being a stay-at-home Dad is like unemployment.”

That’s it. That’s the one that’s “as short as a short sentence.”

That sounds like a life sentence to me. Luckily, I don’t feel bound by the Atlantic’s hidebound ideas of manliness.
