The latest: letting my son's ex-girlfriend (they parted acrimoniously) stay with us for about a week, after she lost her internship and before she could organize herself to get back to Texas. We treated her like a daughter and had a great time. Meanwhile, my two young-adult children were far away.
I love the idea of poking holes in stereotypes in a visual way. In this polarized society, it's important to see each other as individuals.
