Georgia Doesn't Want To Become Her Parents

Parish Photography

Georgia Erck is a San Antonio writer. Her story, like all great stories, is about family. Georgia was obsessed with not becoming her parents: one an agoraphobic that worried the house would explode, the other never found a microphone he didn't speak into.

Fortunately for us, she failed to avoid becoming a little bit of both of them. She didn't appreciate this fact until they were gone.

This story was recorded at Worth Repeating 's "Obsessions" show on December 12.
