Hey, buddy, can we talk?
(sits down backwards on a chair for some straight-talk)
Registrations on https://dads.cool are application-or-invite-only, because not all dads are cool, y'know?
DM me or use the application on the landing page; I will get back to you quickly. Referrals from existing users go a long way towards approval.
Good talk, chief. I'm proud of you, and I love you.
dads.cool is an instance for dads. Dads can be any or no gender, but they do have to have to have or be expecting at least one human child (sorry, pets don't count).
We're all about home improvement projects, complaining about smells, cracking open a cold one or three, talkin' cribbage, Steely Dan LPs, grill discourse, mowing the lawn begrudgingly (because we're opposed to lawns, not because we're opposed to the labor), coffee, scouting, and turning down the damned tv, kids
@alex This the pinned toot on this account now
@alex I will continue to seek your approval
@smolshrew as your father, I approve of you.
@alex the gauldarn kids lost it for good this time, i swear, it's been weeks since it was last seen
@alex pets don't count? *instant instance block*
@applebaps having a pet does not make you a father, it makes you a pet owner, just as cooking dinner does not make you a chef.
@alex i cannot subscribe to this Dad Prescriptivism
@alex or cook/chef gatekeeping, frankly!! i am shock
@applebaps part of being a dad is saying no.
@alex *throws a tantrum*
@alex nice dad 'stache
@alex this is cool as hell. Looking forward to maybe joining someday.
@alex instance blocked for telling other people to remember to take a jacket before they go out too much
The thermostat for this instance is fine where it is, we aren't made of money you know
@alex I thought Kasia was just making this up
@lukesci you best start believing in dad instances...... you're in one!
@alex is there a dad instance already? oh we definitively need a mom´s instance
@alex this is so unexpected. I love it!
@alex an instance can just be a bunch of dads
that's it, just a bunch of dads with no kids
@alex what is the thermostat set to on the server
@fox dads.cool "invested" in a smart thermostat that we don't know how to use, but we will learn when we get a chance, no I know the air is on but it's 60 degrees out just give us a break please
Do y’all get a lot of perverts circling your specifically themed instance?
@denikombucha perverts? eh. Single women in their late 30s? Absolutely
dads.cool is a Mastodon instance for dads.
