It's a really long story, but this is my fourth year at my school and I'm just now making friends. Today, I was talking about my mom, and I asked one of my new friends, "What do your parents do for a living?" She answered, and I told her what my mom did. Then she asked me, "What does your dad do?" Oh...snap. Ummm.....yeah. I just said, 'That's kind of a difficult question to answer." I'm sure I must have either paled or blushed. I haven't gotten the opportunity to talk to anyone my age about that since...well, never. I'm shy, so it's really hard, and I've been trying to push away all of the emotions since then. Was my response a bad one? I don't want to endanger a friendship that just started.
