A thought I had while at Amy's parents' place this weekend: (I wrote it down. la la la.)
"Each relationship I've been in has given me a different set of parents with different expectations both conscious and unconscious, both spoken and unspoken, both interpreted by their daughters and uninterpreted. It's given me, I think, a broader view of humanity than I would otherwise have had, more data points on what I might at some point incorporate into my life."
Scary thoughts, neh? La la la. :)
