«Traveling with our father meant always having to stay at nationally-known motor lodges, and taking our meals only at fast-food restaurants. "What?" he'd ask, "are you telling me you'd rather sit down at a table and order food you've never tasted before?" Well, yes, that was exactly what we wanted. Other people did it all the time, and most of them had lived to talk about it. "Bullshit!" he'd shout. "That's not what you want!" When arguing, it was always always to deny the validity of our requests. If you wanted, say, a stack of pancakes, he would tell you not that you couldn't have them, but that you never really wanted them in the first place. "I know what I want," was always met with "No you don't!" My mother never shared his enthusiasm for corporate culture, and as a result they had long since decided to take separate vacations.»
