Fish Food - Behind The Awkwardness

“When I was about 9 or 10, my mum and dad took me and my sister on holiday to Wales. My dad is the biggest wind up merchant and never happy until he can make a kid cry. On this occasion, he had convinced me that the lake was full of man eating piranha fish and 6 ft deep. This was taken by mum, you can’t see my sister laughing behind her, but my whining and protesting at the prospect of being fish food made for a good photo that’s haunted me for years. Dad has just confessed after 30 yrs that he felt bad for making me cry!”

    Interesting that you dad stated apologizing now, as he is reaching the age when you may become the one who makes the decisions about his medical care and his retirement home. Well, don’t let his belated apology sway you. Go ahead and find him a nice, clean home with a dedicated staff, but be sure to tell him that they post pictures on the internet when they give sponge baths and they use dog food to make the meatballs.
