Is This the Twilight Zone?
Last week I was discussing my future career plans and goals with my mother and father. Upon me stating that I want to have a highly successful writing career and I need a job that gives me a lot of power and prestige my father responds “You don’t need a job, you need to find a husband.”
My jaw literally hit the floor. Here I am, youngest daughter of three older boys, trying to stand on my own two feet and be independent of any man and my dad resorts to acting like a 1950s father who just found out I burned my bras. My response? “I don’t know what delusional world you live in, but you’re lucky mom doesn’t leave your ass.”
