Dear Jack: I Broke Boards for the 1st Time, Doing Taekwondo

11 years, 8 months.

Dear Jack,

It was this Father’s Day that I realized at this point at my life, Father’s Day is a bigger deal to me than my birthday now.

And this Father’s Day felt particularly special to me.

I was invited to join you for Taekwondo on Saturday, which I’ve never done before. And at the end, was invited to break boards, also which I’ve never done before!

Most of the dads broke two boards, but when it was my turn, I confidently announced, “I’ll do as many boards as Jack thinks I can break.”

I will say: Five boards sure look thick- and they were!

Somehow, I managed to break 4 of the 5 boards on the first try.

And my foot wasn’t as sore as it should have been!
