If you’ve seen any of Shameless on Showtime, you know that Frank Gallagher father to three and underachieving boozer tends to spend every penny he can muster at the bar. If I could take just a portion of that money and give it to his daughter Fiona….
Poor Fiona. She’s been in this role as family caretaker and deserves so much more- if there was a way to squirrel some of the monies away that her father wastes at the bar, I think I’d send her first to the mall, to do some old fashioned teenage girl shopping, snacking and people watching. As much as I’d like to send her away on a beach vacation or someplace fun, I’d probably get that money into some kind of account that could only be used by Fiona to buy things her siblings and she were in need of- including toys and fun time- but not touchable by her father.
Or maybe I would just tell her to put the money to keep an attorney on retainer. When your siblings have a habit of stealing toddlers to work through their grief (episode 4 from season 1), you know anything that could go wrong will go wrong, and perhaps it would be best if Fiona knew that there was an adult who could help her straighten these sort of messes out!!
