The conversation went something like this:

AG: Are you close to your parents?
Me: No.

AG: Wow, that’s too bad. My parents are like everything to me.
Me: My mother emails every now and then, just fluff.

AG: Fluff?
Me: You know, the weather, stuff she did, the weather.

AG: Oh. Is your dad still alive?
Me: I guess.

AG: You don’t know?
Me: I haven’t spoken to him in over 10 years. I think my mother would have told me if he had died. Right after the weather.

AG: God, I hope so. That’s kinda sad.
Me: Yeah, everything kind of broke when I was six and never got put back together.

AG: Oh. You mean your parents got divorced?
Me: Oh, I wish.


  1. "AG: Oh. You mean your parents got divorced?
    Me: Oh, I wish."

    While I don't think any of can truly understand how changes in our past would affect us today, I remember having that same thought many, many times when I was younger.

    And even though I'm not at all surprised that others have felt this way, I still take some comfort in knowing that I'm not the only one who has had such thoughts.

    By the way, your pictures on the DeviantArt site are fantastic! Great eye.

  2. Thanks, Bard. Nice to see you again.

  3. I checked the Deviant Art site for the first time .. I hadn't realised you had photos there. I agree with Bard.. good job!

  4. I should add more, but I probably won't.

  5. My whole head gets in a mess of thoughts over this topic of parents.
