Good thing they like me.

Mother of the bride: That's good. Going to see the minister is a significant step toward the thing.
Father of the bride: Yes. Getting going seemed quite difficult.

Now I'm a parent and spending a lot of time with the children sometimes I am uncomfortably aware of how well my parents may know me. They've known me a very long time, since before I was subtle or duplicitous, and biology lends an intensity to the relationship such that parents may well be motivated to bring their full intellectual power to bear upon analysis of their children.

I find it more worrying when I realise that in a given situation I'm acting exactly the way my mother would.
