What I want for Christmas

Selective hearing. So when my parents say something that annoys me, I can’t hear it, and thus can’t say something back that annoys them.

Also, not to step in poo again. That was gross.

    You know what really helps? Living far away. It’s much easier to bite your tongue for a week than it is on a daily basis.

    You know what else really helps? Learning how to politely and firmly end a conversation you don’t actually want to have. This is easiest with strangers, and probably hardest with your parents.

    Merry Christmas!

    Uh yeah. I realize now that I have a better long-distance relationship with my parents than in-person. Or at least an easier one.

    Haha, thanks. You too!
