It is an awful feeling when I do/say something that is My Mom or Dad incarnate. But, what can we expect? Genetics can be a bitch. Of course, if I am the culmination of their genetic potential-well, that's cruel too, isn't it?

Are you a carver or a modeller?

Debra Kay said...

Yes, but I'd like to think I've risen to new heights of fuckedupedness.

do i take this personally or not?

FY-haven't you heard my theory that past the age of 25 we can no longer blame our parent's for who or what we are? We can recognize the similarities, acknowledge the contributions, but after a certain age we really are our own creations. Too bad that for some of us that looks like Frankenstein's monster.

love him alot, but this reminds me of my dad. and I agreed to stop blaming him for my shit along time ago.
Maybe it's different for men, women have more of a capacity to move on - the men I know so want approval from their dads

Prozacville said...

Yep. This is a Dad thing. Well-spotted Mim.

Nadler, I'm a carver modelled by a modeller carved in a carvery.
