Sometimes, in the middle of a completely unremarkable day, things just fly in from nowhere and whack you in the head. My dad sent me a text message today, telling me that he is planning to propose to his girlfriend this weekend. His girlfriend is one year older than me. She’s nice, but…she’s one year older than me. Even my brother’s girlfriend is older than her.
And today is the anniversary of my parents’ divorce. I do believe the irony is probably lost on him.
I’m still processing this. If they are both happy, love God and love one another, then I wish them well. But I still reserve the right to be weirded out.
