“Welcome to the ``Flat Daddy” and ``Flat Mommy” phenomenon, in which life-size cutouts of deployed service members are given by the Maine National Guard to spouses, children, and relatives back home.

The Flat Daddies ride in cars, sit at the dinner table, visit the dentist, and even are brought to confession, according to their significant others on the home front.”

If you can’t handle someone at their worst,

You don’t deserve them at their best.
