Currently in Tennessee instead of my home base in Texas, and in order to survive my family, my plan is simply to never be sober until Tuesday. So far today:
- Dad packed his walkie-talkie radio that’s been tuned to trucker frequencies so that he can intercept Spanish-speaking truckers to demand that they speak English at all times and also question the legitimacy of their citizenship.
- Mentions of the War on Christmas and the oppression of the majority so far today: 3
- Rich white people discussing what makes something ACTUALLY racist: 2
- "Faggot:" 2
- "Nigger:" 1
- Grandma asking when I’m going to get a nice boyfriend already and aren’t there ANY boys at school that I find at least a little bit cute please sweetie I want to see you have a boyfriend before I die: 1
- Dad, realizing that there are no brown people to harass, turning his condescension and ire towards everything I do, whether it is unpacking the van or helping with dinner, because I am Not Doing It Right (there is no way to do it right:) check
I guess consider this my Festivus Airing of Grievances, even if they’re not to the right people. And also it’s technically a day late. Fuck it, it’s the 23rd on the west coast still. There is only so much gentle correction I can attempt before I just sequester myself off to the entertainment room with a bottle of rum and vodka in each hand.
Whatever holiday you choose to celebrate this season (or none at all,) I hope everyone has a good time this season. I know I’m going to try to, against all odds!!!
