Why Emo’s Really Bug You

| Sweden | Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters

(I am going through a gothic/punk phase as a young teenager, and I am very interested in horror movies. We are having a normal family dinner conversation.)

Mom: “Do you remember those cockroaches in your and grandma’s hotel room last year?”

Me: “Mm?”

Mom: “I read today you shouldn’t kill them.”

Me: “Really?”

Mom: “Yeah. Apparently they are drawn to the smell of death. Just like you.”
