This week #DadChat was, in my opinion, the busiest ever. According to the stats there were 114 contributors and well over 1,000 Tweets. No wonder I couldn’t keep up! It’s hard at the best of times but was it busy this week or what?!
It was hilarious and very close to the bone. Bruce REALLY stirred things up this week. I even had a comment from someone about what was being said and when it popped up I was like ‘Uh oh!’. I had to explain that it was a ‘tongue in cheek’ dad vs mom thing to which they gasped a sigh of relief.
Bruce Sallan’s ‘Dads vs. Moms aka Gender War’ was co-hosted by Mimi Barker (@MimiBakerMN). Bruce and Mimi were fantastic along with a few of my favourite Tweeps who came out with some real good ones! It was a fun night and everyone enjoyed it. At the same time there was a giveaway of FIVE copies of Outwitting the Devil, by Napoleon Hill which Bruce asked 5 questions and the first to get the right answer won a copy.
Anyway, the Gender War covered just about everything; sports, handbags, shoes, fixing things, clothes (especially lingerie!), cooking, multi-tasking, parenting… With the constant running theme of who was on top and winning – then started the ‘who is in control’ debate. You can just imagine the comments that were coming out.
I wish that I could mention all the great Tweeps and comments but there were so many. Instead I have just listed a few of questions posed by Bruce to get the party started and you can either use your imagination for the rest! You will have to fill in some of the gaps as this has been cut right down but hope it gives you a taste of what goes on.
