Parental Issues

"All parents have secrets. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be parents.”

Every once in a while, those words of his father would echo through Don’s head. He knew, intellectually, that his dad was a person, a complete and separate entity that had thoughts and desires that were as unique, as real, as mundane, as human as thoughts that he had or Charlie had. Alan may be his dad, but he was still an individual and no different than anyone else.

Only, every time he’d finally wrap his head around that thought, he’d end up back at the fact that this was his Dad. And dads were, well, dads and not people. They didn’t have secrets; they didn’t have the same issues like real people did. They just didn’t. With that thought firmly in mind, Don would forget about the issue altogether.

Until his father’s words would once again echo through his head.
