Don’s mug was honest, and he accepted that.
Stating #126,527,233rd Dad was blunt, but Don knew his limitations, and wasn’t upset about it. Sure, there were times where he wished he had the #1 Dad mug, or even wished he could crack the top 1,000. But when his kids were being brats, he knew, he wasn’t #1 material.
So Don enjoyed his #126,527,233rd Dad mug, sipping from it daily, content in his placement in the middle of the pack.
