Me and the Mrs went round to my parents for a meal last night. It's always a mixed bag with them because as hospitable as they are (Greeks), there is no love between them - seriously. It was a forced marriage and my Mum has never loved Dad.
Anyway, Mum is a loyal JW to the core, Dad was never interested. At the dinner table Mum has another go at Dad about his smoking. Bear in mind he always goes outside for his cigarette no matter how cold, wet or windy it is. Apparently he is being selfish and if he gets ill from smoking she won't look after him. She said (get this) 'no one who really loved their family would put their health at risk like that'.
I love my Mum but I'm sick and tired of her constant sniping at my Dad who wants so little out of life - to watch his football team (Man' Utd), have a cigarette and enjoy the company of his family.
Now c'mon guys, do I really need to tell you how I reacted and where I took the rather heated conversation?
