I don’t have another piece of writing ready to post – I just posted three chapters of Perspective for God’s sake and editing stories can take a while – so this is going to be a bit of a different post. I thought maybe I would introduce you a little bit more to my parents with this short list of things they’ve said to me throughout my life.
Mom: Liars go to hell. (She used to tell me this when I lied to her as a kid, and it got me so freaked out that I’d immediately tell the truth).
Dad: Do I have to go to your Graduation? It’s going to be SO boring.
Mom: Don’t be a moron. I’ve already got one for a husband, I don’t need one for a son.
Dad: Never get married.
Mom: Whoever said money can’t buy happiness is sadly mistaken.
Dad: If you ever get married, don’t let your wife watch The Shopping Channel.
Mom: Don’t ever get your hopes up for anything because life sucks and then you die.
Dad: You want me to read your new story? I wonder what movie you stole from this time…
Mom: Writers don’t make enough money to live. But, if you want to be a professional writer, that’s okay. You can always sell drugs on the side.
This is why I think my parents are hilarious, yet very strange – now I know where I get it from. Well I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed reminiscing about it.
Are your parents crazy too? Share something ridiculous that they’ve told you.
