Welcome to the world, ladies! There are ax murderers and whores stuffed under every rug, so your kids better read up on it and get educated, because that’s what life is! It’s a cesspool you claw and scratch and fight to swim out of, but you never get to the top!
Parents do not have needs. You ever read the book The Giving Tree? It’s about a tree, and this kid keeps coming and taking stuff from it his whole life, until there’s nothing left but a stump. And then the kid sits on the stump. That’s being a parent.
I had an idea when I moved here of how life was gonna be. And, oh, okay, sure, while life can be disappointing, no one prepared me for the colossal frickin’ face-dive off a cliff that living in this crazy-ass town really is.
