So I haven't talked to my dad in about 3 1/2 years now.
I could tell you some fascinating stories about why this is. Stories that teeter on the point of entertainment.
The point for today is:
I was informed by my mother that my father will be having quadruple bypass heart surgery tomorrow.
What am I supposed to do with THAT?
I don't need anyone to tell me that now is the time to make peace with my dad. My choice is/was not an issue of forgiveness nor is it a form of punishment I'm inflicting upon my dad.
My parents, I think, feel differently.
All that aside, this certainly makes me think. Think thoughts that I don't have time for. I don't have the emotional energy for these thinks.
It just makes me wanna sleep. In a cave. That's dark. With bottles of wine.
