Filial Piety Modeled on Mr. White

I am relieved, because of the burden of travel (the airports, the rental cars), that my exercise of filial piety in the form of visits to the mater and pater is finished for the year.  My next tentatively scheduled trip is Memorial Day.

I consider the relationship to my parents along the lines of the relationship of Mr. White to Mr. Orange in the beginning of Reservoir Dogs.  Mr. Orange has just been belly shot and is bloody and in agony and shrieking in pain and Mr. White cradles him in his arms and combs his hair and tells him he is not going to die.
