Home for the Holidays

Covered Bridge

I went to my parents' house for three days during my Thanksgiving vacation. My parents were happy to see me. I was happy to see them, but I couldn't have been more uncomfortable if I were at a Republican convention. My parents and I differ politically and culturally, so we gradually avoided conversations that would lead to differences in opinions. We ran out of things to say after two minutes. My three-day stay was probably two days, 23 hours, and 58 minutes too long. The only safe topic seemed to be food, but my parents managed to sprinkle guilt and accusations along with turkey and gravy.
