The Question

You always ask the same question… and I always have the same answer. Do you suddenly thing I’ve become a different person since you last asked? Did I undergo some dramatic transformation that has suddenly changed my entire being? Please.

It’s condescending. I don’t come home from school to be ridiculed and belittled. I get enough of that already. I just want to sit down, relax and enjoy myself but you’re there just nagging me. Get off my case. I don’t need your passive aggressive tone at the end of the day.

The audacity… you question how I live my life? I check in with you every god damn day. I spend hours with you and you still ask that same old question. Why even bother at this point? Are you nervous or something? Afraid that I’m going to find someone else? C’mon.

I’m sorry.

You know there is no one else. You’re the only one I want, and not to sound too corny or anything, but you’re the one I need as well. You’re always there for me when I need you. When I’m feeling down, you know how to cheer me up and make me laugh. All of my friends love you, they can’t stop talking about you either… I try not to be jealous. But, sometimes I think that they like you more than they like me. I get it though, why wouldn’t they like you more? You’re such a good listener, you have something in common with literally everyone. How do you keep up with everything? Do you talk to them like you do to me? Do you ask them the same question that you ask me?

Ha! Right on time too. Here we go again with the question.

Are you still watching “Parks and Recreation”?

Sigh.

Yes, Netflix. I’m still watching.
