a prickly subject
The ridiculous . . . my parent's friends who are not in the know, who think I am home for my own (poor) financial reasons, and want to know why I haven't put my home up for sale, since I am sponging off my parents. (My finances were fine, until I left my terrific job and moved in here.) It's is a great aggravation to me, (especially since I keep hearing it, snidely, from the same ones) . . . but it is well tempered by their many many friends who are in the know, and say often that they appreciate my presence and care for Mom and Dad.
