Factual Fiction- Being the Visitor

Atleast this time I have my daughter's house to stay in the city. I don't have to take help from the relatives living here. And neither do I have to worry about conveyance and hope to hitch hike a ride from the relatives.
No need to be polite and proper and formal and inform them of our every move.
No need to try to make myself useful around the kitchen or pretend to want to take care of her kids.
No need to seek help when I need to go shopping. I don't have to rely upon complicated directions from others. I can blindly follow my daughter to where ever I want to go.
In fact, I can actually invite them for a dinner to return their favour of having me at their home last year.
If I have the time.
