This is a question Family codes and rituals

Freddy Woo writes, "as a child we used to have a 'whoever cuts doesn't choose the slice' rule with cake. It worked brilliantly, but it's left me completely anal about dividing up food - my wife just takes the piss as I ritually compare all the slice sizes."

What codes and rituals does your family have?

Drown Daddy Time
My dad had never had swimming lessons, so he learnt to swim at the same time as my brother and me, when we were wee. Every Saturday morning we would all go to the local pool, and at some point during our messing about in the water, one of us kids would yell "It's DROWN DADDY TIME!" Then we would jump on his back and force him underwater. We thought it was hilarious. Years later, my dad informed us that he actually found this quite terrifying, but couldn't say anything for fear of looking like a big wuss in public.

I don't think he's been near a swimming pool for about 20 years now...

oh my
I dont know whether to laugh or cry at that; you're dad must be quite a dude for not getting resentful or angry at you!

I understand as I was always a poor swimmer as a child and going to the pool with my mates in the hope of improving just involved being thoroughly drowned by all my best friends... not my idea of fun
