"I feel sad that you're leaving," Dad said to me over lunch on Sunday.
"You're sad because you won't get the chance to nag at me for the next 6 months right?" I replied.
I didn't expect my dad to actually say this aloud. Deep down inside, I almost feel bad for leaving him and my family. My Dad and I have never really managed to see eye to eye on most things, and at least we have been able to talk properly the past few days without screaming at each other.
But I figure, 6 months apart will reinforce my family ties, because absence WILL make my heart grow fonder.
6 more days!
