For no particular reason, I would just like to take a moment to appreciate my parents.
My mom bought me these flowers. Aren’t they gorgeous? More importantly, though, she also bought me nearly $200 worth of groceries, including various medicines and a cinnamon broomstick which is making the house smell incredible. She is possibly the wisest person I’ve known in my life.
My dad taught me to love to read. Not just do it to expand my vocabulary, but do it to expand my brain. This reading has taught me to use my brain and be an intelligent person, and when I have great and intelligent conversations using literary references like I have today, and when I kick ass at trivia like I’ve had recently, I appreciate his passion for learning in ways I can’t quite actually explain.
I love my mom and dad dearly. It seemed worth sharing.
