Things I've Mistaken for Affection Between My Parents

  1. When my dad puts his hand on the back of my mom's seat when he's trying to back out of a parking spot
  2. When my mom agrees to go see yet another four-hour long Grateful Dead tribute band show
  3. When they stand next to each other at the show and bob their heads at the same pace, reliving their youth together
  4. When I come home and they're watching Days of Our Lives together on separate sides of the room
  5. When they put their arms around each other during a family picture
  6. How my dad still tries to sleep in the same bed with my mom even though he knows he'll have to move on account of her surround sound snoring
  7. How they still love me even when I write lists about them on the Internet
