“You lied to me.”

Those were the first words he used as I met him and my folks for dinner. We were in D.C. celebrating my accomplishments. They were taking this trip because of me. Not for my sake, but out of my success. I don’t know how long they’d been sitting there waiting, talking, sharing -- about me.

“What?”

“You said you came here when you were two months.”

“And?”

“You came here when you were almost one. You spent several months in Thailand and Malaysia.”

I think I changed the subject. Back to me; away from my life.
