Mine are coming tonight. I still have to clean my room and hide all the empty and not-quite-empty wine bottles. I drink very little here because the wine is expensive and bad but I never take the bottles out to the trash so my room looks like it’s inhibited by an untidy alcoholic that wears a lot of stripes.
I’m looking forward to my parents being here for the following reasons:
- They’re my parents and I love them
- They will buy me food
- They will make me food
- They will take me to Stockholm
- The idea of my father being in Sweden - a country he exclusively calls “the wood shavings country” - is hilarious to me
- My mother who looks like the most Swedish Swede to ever swede being here - and not understanding Swedish - is also hilarious to me
