Well, guess who decided to show up two days late? I got an email from my father. Very brief. He told me, Happy Birthday, he loves me and he misses me. Nothing else. WTF? Then contact me you bloody idiot?! Why must it always be up to me–again, why must I always parent my parents! I’ve done it since I was a child and can not do it any more!

And yes, attached was another PowerPoint presentation although this one was at least a bit less painful to view (well, visually) as it was all van Gogh artwork. However, it was set to the music of Don McLean’s “Starry Starry Night.”

Now if you haven’t heard this song, you can grab a listen or take a peek at the lyrics. Okay, I don’t know what the hell could be more triggering to someone who is psych disordered and has issues with their parents, who then receives this from one of them as a “birthday present!?”

And yes, I know it was written about van Gogh but still! It’s not exactly cheery!

What on earth!?

I responded rather tersely and with surprise at hearing from him after such a long pause in communication.

This is not how I wished to start my day.
