After my parents divorce I would go to see my dad with two of my brothers every other weekend At the beginning of this arrangement life seemed great Then again I was five and I had rose-colored contacts My older brother was the first of us to see the cracks in our not-so-perfect situation From that time on I was on the defense line for my dad that is until I found that it was tiring to fight for something I didnt quite believe was worth fighting for By the time I got to my teens my brothers and I no longer went with our dad because he was continually getting sick Then two weeks before my sweet 16 I attended his funeral Had my father lived life would be different and though there are many not-so-wonderful side effects it has made me a better wiser better prepared womanIt seems as though every first or second date every new friendship even brief acquaintances will ask me what my dad does for work Its a common enough question but I hate answering it Theres generally a pause on my part before I load my simple answer on them of he doesnt he passed away then an even longer pause as they process and come up with a million questions they wonder if they should ask There are the brave ones with intruding questions that if you dont want to answer you dont have to the ones who say sorry as though they had anything to do with his death and others who choose to let me alone Im always grateful to those who ask a couple of basic questions and then leave it be Im not embarrassed about what happened but I get annoyed that so many people honestly believe that its okay for their nose to be in my business Not that Im bitterAlthough I am only 18 and marriage is not on the agenda
