So yesterday, we were supposed to have dinner with my family, as we often do on Sundays. Unfortunately, my dad is not feeling well. He finished round 1 of chemo, and was having some difficult side effects. My mom left me a voicemail to let me know that dinner would probably be canceled, and I’ll admit it: I cried. I realize that many people see there family less often than I do, but I love my parents, and I love going home every weekend. I was sad, and also frustrated that my poor dad has to endure such terrible symptoms, and that my mom has to play nurse. It sucks. Anyways, Andrew attempted to make me feel better via G-chat:
me: so, my dad is really, really sick
we probably won’t go over tonight
i have cryings
i really miss my family
me: me too
i just miss my mom and dad
and i hate this, my poor dad.
Andrew: you want me to shave my goatee and pretend to be your dad?
me: um, you’re creepy
Andrew: that’s weird, nix that
me: super weird
Andrew: I didn’t say that
me: could be the weirdest thing you’ve ever said
Andrew: lol. I just want to make you feel better.
Um, I don’t know that it made me feel better or just more scared that this is the person I share my life with.
