In Rosy Peach Apple Eating Life, Samantha is a college student living in an apartment with her friend, Danya. The pair have drastically different relationships with their parents.
Samantha: I cannot talk to my parents every single day. Not like you. How do you do it? You go on these long ‘everything is lovely’ conversations. I hear you and I am awe. Let me just say I am in absolute awe.
I talk to my parents, yeah but it’s more of a long twisted road. Like being in a dying car that can’t make it to the top of a hill fast enough. Yeah.
I love my parents, don’t get me wrong. They’re good people. They are just insane. Really. Incredibly insane. I am yet to see a family as crazy as mine. There are days when I sit back and wonder where all the paperwork must be hidden, you know, all the proof that somewhere, somehow they were in an asylum but escaped.
How do you do it? How do you have such a rosy, peachy, apple eating life with your parents? I figured rather than crying or vomiting each time you speak with your folks, I should ask and learn.
So, please, what is the mystery here? How does that ‘hee hee, haa haa’ life work with Mom and Dad?
