I just had to open my big fat mouth in front of my Dad yesterday…
SO came over for a little bit cause I needed to drop something off at the house, and when we were leaving my Dad was outside having a smoke. We stood out there for a little while chatting about nothing much, and then I mentioned that we were going to go bowling. My Dad asked which alley we were going to (there are a few in the area, none particularly that close to my house tho) which led to a discussion of all the Alleys we’ve been to and then the one SO used to go to with his ex (I swear this is going somewhere, just bear with me)
SO has said that he wants to being me to the bowling alley he used to go to with his ex because he wants to run into her and ‘show me off’. (I don’t agree with it, but whatever)
So I made a snarky comment, wagging my left ring finger saying “Ok then show me off”, and then I said to my Dad and SO “I think you two need to have a talk, I’ll just leave you to it” and walked a few feet away. SO was a little embarrassed and followed me. So we said goodbye and then left (Had a fun night of bowling, SO won a free game by bowling a strike during ‘Cosmic Bowling’!)
When I woke up this morning, I was cornered by my Mom who basically flat out asked if SO and I were talking about getting married. I don’t tell my parents stuff like this because then they annoy me and try to talk me out of it… much like they tried to today.
“But his Mom hates you” (Mom’s Mom hated my Dad…umm hypocrite much?)
“You’re too young” (I’m 28, Mom was 26 when she got married, Dad was 29)
“You never see his friends” (my parents never see their own friends)
The list goes on, but what really hurt the most was the fact that my Dad came in and continued on the topic and ended it with this:
“If he really is going to have that talk with me, he doesn’t have too many points in his favor”
But… I thought they liked him? They do admit that ‘he’s a great guy, he definitely cares about me, he’d do anything for me’ so why argue over the small things?
