my parents... no, i don't often wonder how their childhood was like, because there's no need to wonder. i already know. they tell me about their childhood lives everyday... it's interesting to know how they were brought up compared to me. in shortened form, this is how it is.
dad - school bully but great son (don't ask me how that works... it just does), great at sports but not so good at studying, smokes/alcoholic, etc.
mum - teacher's pet, great at both sports and education, hates the bullies, etc.
it's a wonder how they became husband/wife... and their obnoxious creation became a mix of both their personalities ^_^
