Backstory – I was originally raised in a tiny Vintage Born August 1981 40th Birthday Retro 40 Years Old T-Shirt in Texas. My wife and I have been married for 6 years in July. Our daughter turns 1 in July. We live half the about 1000 miles from my parents. Because of COVID and the distance, this last weekend was the first time we’ve seen them in almost 2 years, and it was the first time they met their granddaughter. I’m white and my wife is Puerto-Rican… normally not important, but unfortunately for the sake of the story, it will be… /sigh
The Event – We don’t have a huge house (Miami real estate market is insane!), just a 2/2, so the parents are on a blow-up mattress in the living room. No worries. I don’t know how the conversation got there, and it never should have, but it did… so we’re eating dinner and it got political… Where I was raised is suuuuper conservative, and I’m extremely moderate. I’m not democrat or republican. I think for myself instead of being a robot that lets others think for me.
