I could see the look on my husband’s face when I would spout their propaganda about food choices and lifestyle changes; he had the same look that I used to have when talking to my friend.
It was some of the only good news I had gotten in a long time, I was so happy I felt like crying. The drive down to Illinois was the most exciting hour and a half of my life. My parents had picked my brother and I up early from school, we had picked up some snacks and were talking about puppy names. My brother and I were fighting about whether we should get a girl or a boy and my parents were fighting about getting all of them or just one.
