Daddy dear, please grow up

September 5, 2007 at 9:45 am (family)

Save us from our parents. Heaven knows they’re good for us but sometimes I just want to break shit after a conversation with my dad.
He, in his infinite wisdom, has now decided he’s the alpha and omega when it comes to invitations. My sister turns 21 later this month and they’re having a do.
Since I was the antisocial one who didn’t want a load of strangers fawning over me, it’s the first time they’re actually planning something like this so I expected some excitement. But this is too much.
Needless to say the fan is being royally hit at every corner. Daddy dearest hasn’t the faintest clue what one does with invitations and the like but has now become the biggest dispenser of advice. Spare me.
If he wasn’t my dad I would give him a lekker piece of mind but for now I’ll have to manage with heavy sighs, shrill voices and meaningful pause.
On this one I kinda won because he changed his mind to what my sister wanted (she works through me; it’s easier that way).
But, dear readers, believe me when I say this won’t be the last on this subject. Until that 21st is over I’m guessing I’ll be venting about it here quite a lot.
