Parents Say the Darndest Things

Conversation from this weekend:
Dad: So we’re leaving tomorrow. The five days went by so fast.

Me: I know.

Dad: At least we got to spend some time with you. Three days is just about one percent of the year. So we spent almost two percent of the year with you.

Me: Well, three days is less than one percent of the year, right?

Dad: Well, okay. We spent just a bit more than one percent of the year with you.
And now my family’s all returned to Connecticut (and Brooklyn) and I miss them again. The other 98.63% of the year can be a little lonely without them.
