the past few days have been lovely
wait are you telling me summit actually took place on june 19th
aka 2016’s father’s day
are you serious right now
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
i’m home sick with the flu and i just received this email from my father
I’m so so sorry I don’t know what to say and I’m sorry it happened to you and I’m sorry it had to happen today of all days and I’m sorry you always make me feel like I’m prying into your business and I’m sorry you think I’m trapped in a glass bubble where no other trouble can reach me and I’m sorry you didn’t talk to me at all and I’m sorry your tone was dismissive and most of all I’m sorry you lost your father. It’s almost funny, you know. Dads are supposed to be immortal. They’re supposed to be solid rocks in the face of whichever storm comes. It’s been raining hard all day, the wind whipping wickedly against billboards and roofs. I’m sorry that of all days to lose someone you love, it had to be today.
I wish I had better words to say to you, but either way I know you wouldn’t listen. I’ve (almost) come to accept that this is a thing of yours: this dismissive-ness, this cold indifference. I won’t begrudge you that. And maybe sometime soon you’d like to talk or maybe not-talk and just sit there in a stony silence, I’m up for it. We may not be best-friend-ly close, but you are my friend. Wish I could hug you right now. Hope this storm passes soon.
It was my dad’s birthday today and I love him he’s just… like, the best man ever. I hope I get to marry as well as my mom did. HAHAHAHA OH GOD DID I JUST TYPE THAT. But anyway, yeah.
Hey, Dad, look at me. Think back and talk to me. Did I grow up according to plan?
when i was little i used to legitimately cry over a goofy movie because max was so mean to his dad like the part where he throws the possum hat out and its raining wow i cant even talk about this right now
