Texts From My Parents

Abstract

Remember that horrible feeling you got in the pit of your stomach when you first saw that Facebook friend request from your mom? How about when your dad, who had previously criticized you for your incessant, “senseless” text messaging, started texting you about his bowel movements? All of a sudden, two worlds are beginning to merge: your family life and your social life. And as hard as you try to resist the inexplicable force pulling these worlds together, in the end you’ll probably be fruitless. Mom’s request might remain untouched in the corner of your Facebook page for a while, but eventually somehow she’ll guilt you into accepting (she did, after all, bring you into this world).
