I’m at least halfway to death, probably closer than not, and I still can’t write or talk about my own experiences without fear of crippling emotional reprisal.

Your kid will get someplace reasonable in a reasonable amount of time and have to deal with some gross people (and nice ones too), and they will likely resent you for not having helicopter money, but if they don’t appreciate you for doing your best, that’s on them.

Also everything smells kind of weird and you need to keep half your brain focused on not losing your wallet.

This is the technique where you follow your kid around but have no control over where either of you are going and if you make too much noise you will get tossed off in a strange neighborhood without cell service.

I thought about becoming a helicopter parent, but I realized I could never afford the fuel. So, bus-pass parenting it is!

It’s possible I advocate for universal health care here in the US because I secretly believe not enough people like me to donate to an online campaign should I fall gravely ill.

Mostly they just don’t really care if we notice or not.

Four hours of folding laundry is too much. The cat is staging an intervention.

One nice thing about being a scholarship student who had to spend most of her adult life drowning in debt: at least I was first admitted to the halls of Academe on my merits. And also by agreeing to study in French so they could boost their Anglophone studying French numbers.

My favorite part is that Gen X is the middle child as usual. We’ll just wait for Kamala or Beto to be free to join us for beers and watch the world burn.
