  • I wonder what it is like to discover that your father is someone unworthy of your admiration. What is it like to grow up, looking through innocence tinted childish glasses and one day forget to put them on. To look at your father in light that is cooler and less forgiving.

Exaggerating all of your personal flaws, exactly the ones that embarrass the most, for an audience much more critical than any stranger could ever be.
