Stiles, I’m interested in your family time because I’m interested in you. If we’re doing this whole date thing, and yes I said date and not dating because this is still a trial period, then I’d sort of like to know what I’m getting myself into. I’m not really sure why you’re so reluctant to answer a simple question about your family. I can easily tell you that my mother and I enjoy shopping together as well as getting our nails or hair done and catching up on over-dramatic episodes of redundant television series. And that my father’s idea of fun bonding is handing me his credit card and telling me to.have at it. We don’t do BBQ’s or ‘normal family things’. We do occasionally have brunch when my father’s in town, but pancakes and fresh fruit is about as far as family time extends for the Martin’s. See? Easy as reciting the first few hundred decimals of pi.
Okay, fine since I know you aren’t gonna just leave it alone and I think it’s kinda sweet that you wanna know more about me even if that more happens to be finding out about what my family and I do together. My dad and I have always been really close, I like watching his work as weird as that sounds and helping him out with whatever ideas I come up with no matter how crazy he might think I am sometimes. My uncle likes teaching me things, he likes hunting so he shows me stuff with weapons and stuff not that that really interests me or anything and Allison and I are constantly just trying not to get on each others nerves. Pretty normal family. Better?
Family things? C’mon, Stiles. I’m sure you can manage an answer much more articulate than that. Hm, I’m betting if you tried really you could give me a whole list. You know, some families participate in sports together such as football or baseball… There’s also activities, such as biking, picnicking, hunting, chess… Perhaps your family enjoys cooking? Or maybe you share a certain interest? Like the same favorite animal or book.
After all, you’re the one that insisted we get to know each other. The least you could do is throw me a bone. I’m still sorry, I can’t even imagine what it feels like to lose a parent… and I’m thankful for that, but also sincerely sorry that you had to experience it.
I don’t know? Family things, we… BBQ’s and stuff, like normal families. I really don’t know? If I thought about it I’m sure I could give you a list so long you’d want me to shut up but I just can’t think right now. There’s some activities, me and my dad like baseball, I don’t know why you’re so interested in my family time.
I know, I did say that but I’ll tell you things about me, there isn’t really anything to say about my family, we get along, we’re stubborn, but in the end we’re family and that’s top priority with us. We do normal family like things. Thanks.
Funny that I’m the only one important enough to get a shout out. I imagine poor Scott’s at home sulking over his laptop as we speak. Let’s not even get started on Isaac, and the likelyhood that he’s currently weeping into his favorite scarf.
I doubt that’s true and who says I wasn’t thinking about giving them a nice long shout out privately?
It’s good being around more of my family and of course a shout out to Miss Lydia Martin; she’s pretty cool.
In a world as dangerous as this one. You have to really realize who you wanna spend time with and don’t because it’s crazy out there. So for sure. Best parts.
I understand. I guess if you guys are pretty close, that must mean you’re into the same things, right? What does your family like to do?
I’m really sorry, Stiles… about your mom and I’m assuming Allison’s too.
I think part of the reason we are all so stubborn is because sometimes we disagree on things but yeah we are into some of the same things like every family that’s closer. Just, family… Family type things, boring, family stuff.
You don’t have to be sorry. It hurts, I think it hurts the people left behind forever but sometimes something good comes along and patches the hurt up a little. Life keeps going that was something I had to learn even though it was hard.
I suppose that would depend on one’s definition of insane, wouldn’t you think? Besides spending a little quality time without your family can’t be that bad… unless it’s something that your family could potentially be into that maybe you’re not into and it just makes the whole thing a real drag.
It’s not that I don’t like what they do, we all have reasons for what we do, right? It’s just a whole lot of stubborn people all in the same room, not that I don’t like it or anything. I’m actually pretty close with my family.
Ever since my mom and aunt died we got really close.
Nothing like family bonding. Spending time with all them reminds me how insane they all are.
