The thing is...

The thing about having my dad here for a visit is that he likes to talk. He doesn't seem to mind telling our family's sordid history to anyone. Which is fine for him. Really. I wish I could talk as openly about our family sometimes as well. But I don't. It still feels uncomfortable for me, but when my dad is in town, I do have to find a way to deal with him telling my friends and family about my mother and how she doesn't much care for me as a person, or how my brother has had so many run-ins with the law. I guess it all takes time and each person handles difficult situations in different ways. It's hard, but it's only once a year, right?
