This was one of the realest pieces I'd read in a while. I remember when I first realized my parents were human and it was crushing.
When I was really young, I had an Aupair who was staying with us from germany. Her parents came to visit after about a year and I remember we were watching them leave and she started to cry. Up until then I hadn't been sure that adults were able to cry, but there she was, bawling and staring after a busted up yellow taxi. I remember thinking "Wow. That's not nice at all."
