This Father’s Day, play
Kids are happy little suckers. They roll down hills, they make up songs, they laugh at your lame-ass dad jokes.
Kids have an innate ability to see the sunny side of things, even when they sky is cloudy. And why shouldn’t they? A child’s job is to grow, learn and play. And make their bed.
Adults, on the other hand, have a different kind of job – the kind they need, for money, to live and support these suckers. In adulthood, play looks a lot more like “clowning around” than personal growth. But researchers are setting out to change that.
Studies show that adults who play are more open to new possibilities, better connected to those around them and have a stronger urge to try new things and take risks. Whether it’s making music or joining a soccer league, carving time to play can contribute to your overall well-being.
So this Father’s Day, play. Break out the Legos. Dust off the dirt bike. Dominate the Nintendo. And don’t forget the edibles. Here are our top five suggestions:
We know, how basic. In fact, how dad-like. But golf goes great with cannabis. You don’t even have to be any good at it. If you can swing it (get it?), get a restless group of dads together, and enjoy the great, green outdoors.

Remember when you were the star of your baseball team? We don’t either. But there’s a reason why adult leagues are so prominent. You may need to steal your kid’s gear, but do it. And throw that ball around. But if Shoeless Joe Jackson shows up, stop.

Pick ‘n strum
If your guitar is in the garage gathering dust, it’s time. Who cares if it’s out of tune, or if the last time you played it your wife threatened to leave you? (“Play Stairway to Heaven one more time, you asshole, I dare you.”)

Be the Big Lebowski
We’re not certain, but we suspect that roughly 89% of the dad population owns a t-shirt that says, “The Dude abides”. Find the cheapest, saddest most neon bowling alley – and give it all you’ve got.

Relive the 80’s
There’s a reason why arcade restaurants exist – they have PAC-MAN and serve beer. Period. And the only thing better than Skee Ball as an adult, is having the endless quarter supply you didn’t have as a child.
