    My Dad Doesn't Talk to Me

    I have no idea why my dad doesn't talk to me. Growing up, it was explained away as "He's quiet." It seemed that he didn't talk to anyone and never ever said a word. Why should I be any different? Do you know how awkward it is to shop for Father's Day or a birthday or Christmas...

    Happy Birthday

    I call my mom every Sunday so she can tell me about her life for 10 minutes while she smokes a cigarette before Desperate Housewives starts. She's been "happily" married to my father for 32 years, but you would never guess he was even alive based on her half of our weekly...

    I think it's always been like this,

    ever since I was little he never acted like my father, or even acted like I was a person. The only memories I have of him as a child were when he was yelling at me; there are no tender moments of affection or any signs of love. It was like he wanted to use me as a way to let out...

    I'm sitting here with my dad.

    He just turned 70 and is high on marijuana which is legal here now and I'm 30 also stoned but I'm also on 3meopcp a drug very similar to Pcp. It is also legal. I wish I knew what he was thinking when he brought me up. I wish he had advice.
