Good news, fathers! I now know the exact amount it costs to be a cool dad.


My kids like when I “drive wobbly” and rock back and forth. When we’re in the neighborhood, I’ll let one of them hop on my lap and do the wobbly driving. It’s rad.

But, the real coolness, and one of my favorites, is flying out of the garage in reverse as fast as possible and throwing it into drive and peeling out.

  • Kids love it.
  • Wife hates it.

And THAT is how you quantify cool dad’ness, because my new transmission to replace the one I just dropped will cost $3260.
