Perfect Dinner

2017

For the past 10 years, my family has owned a limestone factory. My
dad loves this factory very much and he considers it his everything.
He has put so much time and effort into this business, that the only
way he can relax is to drink.
That has made my dad become an alcoholic. He has to drink
everyday at the dinner table, and every time he drinks, he becomes
very aggressive. The only thing he ever talks about is business, and
how he really wants me and my sister to stop doing what we love and
join him at the factory. He constantly complains about everything,
even about the food on the table. Nobody in my family has ever been
able to enjoy a meal at home.
Even though I know he is trying to provide us with a stable future, I
would rather us be poor if it means having a warmer family.
