My dad is cranky. I think, the more time I spend here, the more of myself I see in my parents. It never occured to me that I could have many of their traits... My dad gets quiet cranky like me... it's the same sort of energy I give off, and I can feel it. A forced solitude... I can't help but laugh at him (a little). I keep petting him on the head when I walk past his chair... he must be irritated with me!
