it’s incredible how depressed i can get when i think about the crap that’s been going on between my parents and i ever since i was 6 years old. it really sucks. here i am, 43 years old, and i’m still hung up on what my parents think about me… or, rather, i’m not hung up on what they think about me any more, i just wish they’d either decide to try to get along, or simply leave me alone. the fact that they must drag out the 30-year-old dirty laundry every chance they get, the fact that they claim that they’re still nervous about being around me, and the fact that their hatred of me apparently rubs off on monique and ezra, neither of whom were even born when all that crap was actually going on, make me wish that i could simply swap parents with someone else… although, at the same time, i don’t even know anybody whose parents i’d want to have instead. better the devil you know than the devil you don’t, i guess, but still… my parents REALLY SUCK! if you think you’re going to grow out of them as you get older, you’re wrong!

on a lighter note, animuation is amusing, but noisy. not for watching or listening to while at work, unless you’ve got privacy, headphones, and/or a boss who doesn’t care.

  1. i never said i would be different towards my children, and, as far as i’ve been able to tell, i *am* different with my child, although i’m not sure how he would respond.

    my parents played a mighty big guilt trip game with me when i was growing up. they brought me up to believe that i was the cause of all of their problems, and even now, when i’m 43 years old, they’re still trying to convince me that all of their problems are because of stuff i did when i was between the ages of 8 and 12. not only that, but now they’re blaming both my son and my wife, neither of whom were born when all that crap was going on.

    i *KNOW* i’m not playing that kind of a game with my kid, regardless of what else i may be doing.

  2. Interesting post, says I who you don’t know. 🙂 (Strange how parents keep on haunting their kids…considering that their parents did the same etc, and I am sure that they all said that “I will be different towards my children!”)
