#Audio. #Essay It’s my birthday, but my stepfather died three weeks ago, and I want to talk about him.
By the time I got to high school, we had begun to form a solid friendship, partly out of convenience. I liked to spend weekend nights reading into the wee hours of the morning, and he liked to spend the same late nights doing recreational math. Once, he knocked on my bedroom door and said, “It’s two AM, shouldn’t you be sleeping?”
My response was to ask, “Shouldn’t you?“
