What I Actually Do
I want to ride my bicycle, and be away from home for a couple of days
or maybe even weeks. Everything else just sucks. One day I get ready to go.
I consider recording a new voicemail greeting telling the callers that I am
away riding my bike because everything else sucks. My father once agains tells
me that I have to take some course in order to work and earn again. But I
see myself trying to get a loan after I finish the course in order to rent
a store and establish my own laboratory.
There's that subreddit named AITA, or Am I The Asshole; I think about that
subreddit, and don't really care if I am the asshole.
But then I remember that my daddy has some health problems. Just as I'm
ready to leave home for a littel ride, I pick up the phone and dial my
parents' number to ask how they are doing.
