"Well, it takes a lot of love to forgive."
Yeah, and seeing as I've hated my father for almost 30 years, what makes you think I'll forgive him?!?
"Don't ask a question if you don't want the answer." (in regards to me trying to remember what happened to me)
When did I say I didn't want the answers?! Maybe YOU don't want them so you can still think your rich, guarded life was worse than anyone's.... but I want the answers!!!
My father-in-law before he knew:
"You don't know what it's like to have a rough life. I had to drag my father in from the front lawn at night 'cause he was too drunk to make it in the house! That's a hard life!!!" (which led to him talking about him being hit - not belittling this AT ALL - just showing where the conversation went)
My husband stopped my father-in-law one day (cause this is a common rant of his). This is how it went:
"Well, you know, I had to drag..."
"Yeah, Dad, I know... and *blackfrog* would trade places with you IN A SECOND!"
"Oh..... I'm so sorry. Tell her I'm there if she ever needs to talk."
At least that one had a happy ending.
"Well, you must have misunderstood."
Yeah, I misunderstood a 65 year old man groping the chest of a 16 year old girl and sticking his down down her throat - complete lack of miscommunication on my part.
I'll be back for more - have company.
