I’VE BEEN WATCHING A LOT OF MOVIES AND IT TURNS OUT EVERYONE IS BASICALLY SUPPOSED TO IGNORE THEIR PARENTS FOR A SOLID FIVE OR SIX YEARS WHILE THEY DO ALL KINDS OF ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES AND EXPLORE A WIDE VARIETY OF SEXUAL SCENARIOS BEFORE FINALLY EMERGING AS NASCENT ADULTS, WHEREUPON THEY QUICKLY COME TO REALIZE ALL THEIR PARENTS’ ADVICE AND WARNINGS WERE VALID BUT ULTIMATELY USELESS IN THE FACE OF A DOGGED DETERMINATION TO SELF-ACTUALIZE, LEADING TO AN EARNEST APOLOGY AND A HARD-EARNED RESPECT BETWEEN PSEUDO-EQUALS THAT DEEPENS AND BECOMES THE MATURE FAMILIAL BOND.
SO I’M GOING TO BORROW THE CAR AND A COUPLE PACKS OF CIGARETTES AND FUCK OFF FOR LIKE, HALF A DECADE.
I LOVE YOU, THOUGH. AND DON’T WORRY, WE’LL GET THROUGH THIS.
