one time when i was a teenager i
once complained to my father that i couldn’t wait until everyone stopped acting like they were in high school. “oh honey,” he said. “everyone always acts like they are in high school.” i was appalled by this and for years felt like his worldview was irreparably dark. of course he is right and everyone always does act like they are in high school but the thing he didn’t tell me is that i would almost never care. i forgive him.
