Kids Never Forget
What’s that one thing your parents did that seemed small but felt big at the moment and you’ll never forget? My mind will always hold onto that one time my mom wouldn’t let me use the bathroom in a movie theater because she thought I just wanted to see the holographic walls and didn’t believe I was about to burst from the giant Coke we shared.
Likewise, this daughter will never let her dad live down the Burnt Quesadilla Incident of 2019. The image of a perfectly ruined dinner is singed into her tiny mind, blacker than the quesadilla itself. She might not know what she wants for dinner today or tomorrow, but she’ll always know what she doesn’t want.
