Par for the parental visit course, or midlife crisis?

So far on this visit my father has gotten drunk, insulted my friends, spent more money than he can afford, and hidden himself away for hours at a time to make whispered phone calls to his secret girlfriend.

I don't know why everyone expects priests to be paragons of virtue!

For the life of me, I thought your parents were divorced.

My parents aren't very entertaining. Well, my mom does like to talk about historical romance novels about the spanish armadillos.

Wait is your dad actually a priest, or is there something I'm missing?

Wow! You have such an exciting family! Deep breaths...

The thought that came unbidden to my mind when reading was an amazed, "Oh, Jesus!"

At least you don't live at home? Sorry. It's the best I can muster.

Yes, NK, actually a priest. Of the Anglican persuasian.

And Geeka, they are separated. The divorce hasn't come through yet. Which might have something to do with why the girlfriend is (supposedly) a secret (still married in the eyes of the church or something --- oh, and she's a priest too, so it gets juicier. Plus she was the "other woman" that they split up over). He's not very good at hiding secrets, though.

I wasn't too insulted when he wouldn't help with the puzzle!
