I am 26 years old and am about to go put on full pants and a long-ish sleeved shirt in 90 degree weather so that my daddy doesn’t see my tattoos and get mad.
Usually I don’t mind this, because I know they make my parents unhappy and I don’t want to upset them, so I just cover them and leave it at that.
But sometimes, like today, it annoys me. I don’t really want or need to be getting YELLED at when I’m 26 for something that I put on MY body with MY money that does NOTHING to affect them.
Maybe if I were 16 and went behind their backs and used their credit cards, that’d be one thing. Or if I tattooed “I HATE MY PARENTS” on my face in red ink, sure, I get it.
So now I’m going to sweat to death and be uncomfortable for the rest of the day because the sight of some cursive permanently on my arm is just too much for them. AWESOME. SOUNDS FUN.
…Whatever, I’m still covering up. My parents do a lot for me. I can do this for them.
…This has been the last rant for the day, I promise. Back to the regularly scheduled positivity in a bit.
a lot of my older followers know that ive been super frustrated in the past by the fact that my parents are extremely unhealthy—not just with their lack of exercise but also their eating habits. because they bring home shitty food, and ive gots me a binging problem, we clash when it comes to our dietary lifestyles pretty often.
my dad recently retired, though, and apparently he and my mom are on a health kick now, so im pretty pleased—not just for myself, but for them too, because its about time they start taking care of themselves better. theyre even cutting back on smoking, which is awesome!
they’ve attempted several times to hike the local peak, aka the mountain of death if you’ve kept up with past entries, but never got more than 10 minutes up the mountain. but i guess that a few days ago my dad went back with my brother, who is basically GI Joe, and climbed all the way to the top. which is awesome, but now he wont shut up about it. my mom was texting me earlier with this:
mom: your dad is driving me nuts. now hes talking about how hes going to write a book about how he climbed to the top of mission peak
me: whats he gonna call it
mom: “ima tiger now”
me: hahaha what the fuck you people are so weird
mom: yeah i know. he says chapter 1 is going to be on how to get the proper nutrition before hiking
mom: hes eating cookies right now while he talks about it. omg. shut up.
