I really love my parents. I'm close to them. But despite that fact, there's just some shit I don't ever want to know about my mom and dad. Like, this one time I got in a fight with my dad, and it got pretty heated. After, I vented to my mom.
"Mom," I said, "Dad can be such a prick sometimes."
"Boo," she replied, "Your dad loves you. He's a good man. He's a gentle man. And he's a gentle lover."
I cringed at that last line. It made me really uncomfortable. I was shocked that my mom would tell me that my dad is a gentle lover, because that has NOT been my experience.
