Life used to be good I would jump out of bed every morning fresh as a lark I would bike to my neighborhood elementary school playing with my classmates laughing joking making new friends I would reach home around 3pm finish my homework play my favorite games on my computer doing everything I could possibly desire in life Every evening my father would arrive back from work a benign smile on his face and I would race up to him leaping up and feeling his strong arms embrace and twirl me around My mother would whip up a splendid dinner of meat and the freshest vegetables you could get Occasionally she would hide sweet dainty treats in the food perhaps it was impaled in the chicken or maybe subtly arranged alongside the celery Every time we found a treat we would giggle in childish glee hastily wolfing down the candy lest it got stolen We would then lock in a one-minute embrace to celebrate our lives our being together as a family our blood deep relationship It was Bliss All that changed It was not the slow gradual transmogrification and decline of a relationship It was a cruel merciless harsh realization dawning upon my young and feeble mind No longer did my father return from work punctually The times of his arrival became largely randomized sometimes coming home at 7 sometimes at 10 So much so we gave up having dinner together My father had to work overtime Why To raise money The prospect of coming home to a scrumptious filling dinner immediately dissipated Just for the sake of some meager measly pittance my father desired Instead of the once-perfect cooking of my mothers we were pitifully confined to the perimeters of takeaway food The food was often icy-cold and sometimes late to deliver causing my father to get irritated and sometimes throw any projectile handy It was a beer bottle the last time
