Here goes nothing....
Well, My name's Tory. I'm 14 and in the ninth grade. My parents have been married for 21 years and have 4 kids, one daughter-in-law and a grandson.
Tonight's Christmas Eve, and my dad is in Kuwait. He's been there for about 2 years now. He called around 7:30 and was talking to us all, and then my mom went and talked to him in her room. About 45 mintues later, she came out and was shaking and went straight to the liquor cabinet. My thought was "Oh crap what happened?" We all saw what was wrong, but said nothing. My sister asked what was wrong and she said "Well, your father likes being single." I understood right away and was bawling my eyes out. She explained a little bit and my brother started crying along with my sister. My brother is a BIG guy, he's a football player and the only time I have seen him cry is when he dislocated or broke something. I have never seen him cry like this before, though. Man, I hate him.... What do I do now? What am I supposed to do? What are we supposed to do? We have 2 kids in band, indoor percussion, and I'm in handbell choir. My brother's on the football team. How are we supposed to pay for all of this stuff? For all of the uniforms and payments? Man, I hate him!!!!! I never want to see him again, and when he comes home for my sister's graduation, I'm not acknowledging that he's here, and I'm not going to talk to him at all.
Him and my parents have always said during the 21 years of being married, "Divorce is in our vocabulary."
Bull fucking shit. It's not in my mom's anyways.
