My parents are doing it again

That one recurring argument.
When my mother coplains about the heat
And he says "I remember a time when ... if it wasn't 75, 80 degrees, you weren't happy"
And my mother looks at him.
Just a long stare. Like she's puzzling something out.
and, looking away, rolling her eyes, having made up her mind
sighs at him "I never liked it hot."
"oh yes you did! I remember it. don't try to lie."
"Doug, I never liked it hot"
"Fine, fine, your memory is going."
and my mom just heaves a heavy sigh.
They've been having this argument since I was a kid.
it's always been the same.
My mother just giving in.
My father, sure that he's right.


I'll hear it again at least 10 or 12 more times until the weather turns cool again.


My mother has always hated the heat.
My father has never paid enough attention to her to notice.

Maybe I should just...
..write up a generic sort of "Jeez, your father is</b> scum, isn't he?" kind of message, and save it on my hard drive for these sorts of times.

Yeah... I know how that is...
Yeah. My parents had a similar argument over if my Mom ever liked Mushrooms. She'd always hated mushrooms. But Dad never knew that. Sucks.
