These household items will always be your worst nightmare.
No trip to the supermarket was complete until your parents had knocked on every single fruit on display.

No one could beat you at the extracurricular activities game because you did it all.
Piano, Kumon, violin, basketball, choir. Name it, and you’ve probably done it.

Starving yourself for a whole day was a must before going to a buffet.
And when you were there, prime rib and lobster were your best friends.

And while your parents might not have said “I love you” or given you hugs and goodnight kisses, deep down, you knew they loved you more than anything in the world.
And that’s all that matters.
