Ilove my mom But it would hard to deny that I have been somewhat relieved to have 2000 miles between us since she moved back to Mississippi My mother is the bipolar product of an anxious Japanese woman and a stereotypical Southern man Raised in the South she was a teenage hippie minus the politics and plus a country-club membership She and my dad the product of a talented salesman and an immaculate housewife moved from Mississippi to Hollywood in the 70s so he could become a professional musician In sixth grade my dad announced their separation and divorce It wasnt especially surprising but I cried and then thought that living in two places might be fun So in seventh grade every weekend Id either pack to go to my moms apartment or pack to return to my dads - our hed insist - three-bedroom Craftsman In ninth grade the sleep-overs at my moms stopped because of one night that was an accumulation of the dysfunction she thought she might hide My mom and her live-in friend Bobby had taken me and my younger brother Scott out to eat on Valentines Day and my mother had one drink too many Scott and I were embarrassed enough just walking home with my mom and Bobby but the balloons and flowers his gifts for her we had to carry and her wanderings in front of cars added to our disgust We reached her apartment and my brother left to rollerblade with friends he understandably didnt want to be around that night I left my glasses in the bedroom I shared with him and went to the small living room My mom was sitting on the black couch with red eyes She was a big sobbing mess Why dont you have your glasses on she questioned trying but failing to steady her voice Um I was going to take a shower
