Dad: So, I'm reading this article in the New York Times about how to talk to your kids about sex...
Me: (Oh God, where is this going?)Dad: And it's about how you shouldn't just talk to them once, but it should be an ongoing conversatio---
Me (interrupting), Um, I definitely don't want to talk to you about that NOW..
Dad: That's not what I was saying. Just wanted to make sure we did this for you, and that we did ok --
Me: Well, Mom took care of that. Which was fine, because at 12 years old, I certainly did NOT want to talk to YOU about it.
Dad: ...because I know that with your brother, the conversation I had with him was abysmal.
(~wait for it~)
Me: Well, Marc got married young and has two kids. And I JUST got married and have no kids. So I'd say that things pretty much worked out how you probably wanted them to.
Annnnnnnnnd scene.Today I'm not only grateful for my family, but that I have a FUNNY family. Everybody has a great sense of humor, and we laugh a lot when we are together. Laughing is possibly my favorite human activity, so that works out well. :-)
Off and running,
