via Lecture

We have a rule in my house, 

no lectures by my father until after nine o’clock in the morning,

no lectures after nine o’clock at night.

He’s a long winded man who likes the sound of his own voice and repeats himself often.

He didn’t seem to catch on to the fact that sometimes we just wanted to forget about our intellect for a while.

We just wanted to be a family that laughed together.
