Yeah, that just happened

Standard

I’ve mentioned before that ny dad just doesn’t get it. No matter how I try to explain my eating disorder, he just can’t seem to wrap his head around it. Tonight I have, for your viewing pleasure, another example. Here is a conversation I just had with him. 

Dad: How much do you use your bike each day? 

Me: It varies. Usually between 3 and 6 hours. 

Dad: Great job! 

Me: …Thanks

Dad: Do me a favor, tomorrow, after you finish on the bike, do an hour for me.

Me: Ok, Dad.

Dad: Haha, yeah right.

Me, in my head: You have no idea.
