SO. Otter tagged me to do a meme but she didn't specify who for so I'm not gonna do it until she says.

In the meantime.

Some of you may know that my dad was married before he married my mom. Anyway, he got two kids outta that marriage; Patrick and Roy, 36 or 37 and 35, I think. Because his ex-wife was an emotionally abusive drunk cunt, my father decided, after nearly 10 years of that, to leave her. He still saw his sons for several years, but at one point the manipulative bitch managed to make Patrick believe that his father was an asshole. Roy gave my dad the benefit of the doubt, kept seeing both his parents, and after some years moved in with my dad. Patrick never saw my dad again. I think he's got two kids now. That was 28 years ago. My dad went into therapy for this for an extended period of time, he kept sending letters (the last one was, I think, around the time my sister was born, 16 years ago) and cards and whatnot. He just wanted Patrick to understand, since the kids had been too young to fully understand when their parents split up. He sometimes still has days where he's depressed or full of anger at his ex-wife.
So uh. Last week my dad got a letter from Patrick. After 28 years. Saying he'd had a burn-out, and his therapist had told him in order to get over it, he should get rid of all his questions and doubts and shit. So he wanted to ask my dad a few questions, like, 'why did you leave us? Why did you never attempt to contact us anymore?'. You know, the expected stuff. I called my dad like an hour after he got the letter, and I was the first person he told. Man, is it awkward to hear your dad crying over the phone and not be able to do anything :<
We'll see what happens. He's writing a letter now, to explain everything. He's got nothing to lose, so he's just saying everything on his mind. Afterwards, his son might want to meet. Man.

in other news I got my ears pierced again, two extra holes on the left side. I say to the guy, hey, two new holes plz. He does it, I come out, Milla asks 'why did you only get one?'. I say I got two, wtf. 'But you only have one new one.' I go back, say, guy, there was already a hole in my earlobe wth he goes SORRY WASN'T LOOKING lemme make a new one.

clearly you weren't looking there WAS A HOLE IN MY EARLOBE HOW DO YOU MISS THAT AS SOMEONE WHO PIERCES FOR A LIVING.

I don't want to take it out yet in case there IS new hole, so i am left in suspense. Also got a leather jacket and a new bag huzzah for spending more money than I have.
