    My father has been dead for decades and, as far as I can determine, my mother's sole occupation was smoking, eating, and living off the pension she gets from my dead father. She was quite a role model.

    ... mother's sole occupation was smoking ...
    My mother chain smoked Lucky Strikes ... which might explain why she is now six feet under.

    My father was in the air force and my mother was a nurse. Both are now happily retired and running a B&B on Lake Ontario. During the off season, they vacation (currently in the D.R., but they're going to France in the Spring - not that I envy them or anything).

    My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery.

    My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet.

    My father was a gambler down in Georgia. He wound up on the wrong end of a gun.

    My mother was a tailor. She sewed my new blue jeans.
