I believe that seven paces is the traditional distance to be kept before the "DAD-deeee" warning is sounded. You could always threaten to fully Flusserize, hover, and go "that's my little girl" to strangers, but I'm sure you'll allow her full dignity

Hahahaha. I have a photo of K. at 12, arms crossed, hips akimbo, sunglasses, that I should show you...

Let me guess...you just told Miss LFG that you squandered her back-to-school shopping dollars on toy soldiers.

Aw honey, what were you wearing, did she disapprove of your shopping ensemble? This is the grand thing about being 12, she can be wearing a dayglo knit top with track shorts, but let you step out of her private pinhole of approval and, well, see photo...

Love both of you to pieces, press on.

Awww, poor guy. I'm afraid it may only get worse. But I swear she will appreciate everything even if she doesn't say so.

This is what parental success looks like, healthy age appropriate behavior. Congratulations!!! You've done it old man!

Wait a sec...on second thought, by any chance might you have been wearing this particular ensemble out on the street for y'all's shopping excursion?

Hahaha! You can just feel the waves of general disapproval emanating toward you.

I'd like to say it gets better, but actually it doesn't, at least not so far. They don't even want to go with you!

It will not be a bit better in 10 years when you take her shopping for furnishings for her first dwelling after college graduation. I know because we are living it right now.
