Families can get annoying as hell but you really can’t do anything about it because they’re, well, family. You can’t live with them can’t live without them. No matter how much you screw up any new endeavour, they will always have your back and support you. They will support you even if that girlfriend of yours turns out to be a player and runs of with all your money leaving you in an emotional turmoil and lacking financial support (read: broke). Not to mention the free living services they offer.
Fortunately, Barbara and Walt Murphy are the sort of parents that everyone dreams of, they will support you in life every single day, just as long as it does not embarrass them and if it’s not law school. Otherwise, you’re good to go.
Meet the Murphy’s. They are supportive, kind, loving, caring and protective. They let you choose anything you want for yourself as long as it makes you happy. And if it does not involve a credit card bill. Or belly buttons. Or tattoos. Or funky hair dyes.
Otherwise, they’ll let you do anything you want, they’ll let you dream and float away to wonderland. As long as wonderland is a playground in the neighborhood and within four blocks and doesn’t require a lot of walking distance.
“We are supportive of whatever choices you may make in life. We let you quit scouts to play soccer and we supported when you quit that for cross country,” Leonard states warmly. “But we would really like to spend one goddamn Christmas without getting the third degree from your aunt Marie about whether or not we’re still paying your rent.”
The Murphys seem to be very emphatic on the fact that they want your happiness and satisfaction no matter what. Unless it is playing the tambourine or the spoken word.
Because they’d have a hell of a time explaining that on a fun get-together with their friends and family. That’s not something they’re looking forward to explain. Especially not on Bingo night. Or any other gathering that involves social interaction.
“There are so many great creative jobs we support. Judge, Senator, even a disgraced Press Secretary sounds pretty good at this point – and we’re democrats!”
Mrs. Murphy told all the reporters.
Mrs. Murphy feels that it’s important and necessary even, to remind you that her nephew, Aunt Shelly’s son, Mark is a Veteran in the Navy and Surgeon too.
Doesn’t that blow your mind away? It’s so fascinating that you could be BOTH of these things.
The Murphy’s stress on the fact that they’re okay with whoever who want to date or fall in love with. It’s just that they shouldn’t have facial piercings, credit card debt and they shouldn’t talk to much either.
At present, Mrs. Murphy is looking forward for you to live anywhere as long as it makes you happy. And as long as it’s America and near enough to not make it an overnight trip for them.
