I remember the day my father had announced that he was moving us all to California.
We were sitting at the dinner table, eating the pork chops, mashed potatoes and broccoli that my mother always served on a Monday night, when my father, in his usual inebriated state, made the declaration as decidedly as if he was going to move the furniture around in the front room.
“We will be moving to California this coming Friday. Get your things packed, and tell your teachers that you need to turn in your books,” he slurred his words a little as he waved his hand like a giant fly swatter, “We are getting out of here before the snow hits.”
