I was going to lie. I’ve had a lot of practice, you see. When I was growing up I lied all the time. To the police. To social workers. I had to keep big secrets… I remembered the last time I saw my father hit my mother. I was twenty. A grown-up. I’d gone home for a visit, and it started. Mum did something. I don’t remember what. She didn’t put enough tomato sauce on his plate. She laughed the wrong way… You know what I did? I ran to my old bedroom and hid under the bed. Because that’s what my sister and I always did. I didn’t even think. I just ran… and then all of a sudden I thought, ‘My God, what am I doing? I’m a grown woman hiding under the bed’ So I got out, and I called the police. I don’t hide under the bed anymore. I don’t keep secrets.

Bonnie. Bonnie! Can I talk to you for just a second. Couple of things, I’m happy that Abigail has bonded with your mother. Thrilled about the communal potato peeling thing but when it comes to my daughters social recreational life particularly if it concerns medications that will permanently effect her reproductive organs, will you just kick that little can of worms over to me? Do you understand? I do. And should Skye come to me ten years down the road and ask for a little lift to Planned Parenthood, I would give you that courtesy call first. Thanks.
