- I just don't understand why
- March 5th, 2010
If I had known that my stepfather would take issue with where I sat at the table tonight, I would have moved from the seat I had been occupying for the better part of two hours. I'm sorry, but I didn't realize we had to sit in certain seats, or that if I sat in his usual seat that he would call me hypocritical.
Because, apparently, the fact that my brother and I used to fight about where we sat when we were children since one seat offered a better view of the television where we used to live appears to me that I cannot have grown up past this. So I was exhibiting hypocrisy when I said I didn't care where I sat.
And, if he was in fact just trying to be funny, he fell flat, very flat (and since he doesn't usually try to joke I don't think he was). I will be returning to my usual choice of not eating at the table with them, since clearly welcomed I am not.
