My dad would tell me that when we were little and people would say to him “wow, four daughters, that’s a lot of weddings to pay for” (because traditionally the bride’s family would pay for the wedding), my dad would respond with “well, we’re hoping at least one of them will be gay so we can split the cost with the other bride’s family”
He said people never knew how to respond
2009 me would think that 2014 me was hot and thats all that matters
2009 me and current me would not be on talking terms. 2009 me would look at 2014 me, like they were a rebel. 2014 would pity and sad chuckle at the 2009 me. Thinking that they should let loose.
But both of us have a similarity we seek understanding.
