My relationship with my mom has been strained
ever since I dropped out of college to pursue a career selling jeans at
the Gap. But not long ago, I lost my job, and she offered up her spare
bedroom. I'm guessing that it was simply lip service since she now
tells me to get out daily. And not with words. In the worst way. She
and her boyfriend (who's 12 years her senior) have sex all the time and
run around naked when they're not joined at the hip. Prior to my moving
in, their touchy-feeliness told me that they had a healthy sex life,
but I never knew how healthy. When I wake up in the morning, I
hear them humping. When I go out to get some Subway around noon,
they're getting freaky in the dining room; and when I get back, they're
lounging around the kitchen in the nude! I know that my mom can do what
she likes in her house, but I'd like for her to respect that I'm there.

to cut back on the fuckery while I'm around?
