A conversation between my parents last week regarding my birthday:
Dad: Isn’t it her birthday next week?
Mom: Yes. Shall we all have dinner together?
Dad: Sure. I want to eat Chinese food in Mongkok.
Sometimes, it’s hard to succinctly describe to people why my dad can be a very difficult person to be with and why sometimes he makes me want to set my head on fire. But there you go, maybe I’ll just tell this story instead.
Family is always a strange bash.
