Me: Dad, I’m going out of town next weekend to an atheist conference.
Dad: More atheist stuff?! Always the atheists…
Dad: Just quit all your atheism stuff.
Me: You’re right. I’ll quit tomorrow.
Dad: And what’s this book that came in the mail?
Me: Yay! It finally came! It’s Unaccustomed Earth. Jhumpa Lahiri‘s new book. She’s amazing. And she’s brown. Remember, you saw The Namesake movie? That’s her book, too.
Dad: Oh… Go write a book like her.
Me: … Yeah, I’ll get right on that.
