Okay so that title has almost nothing to do with my post..I just really like that line..
Okay so last night’s conversation:
Me: “Hey so my two friends from Florida will be coming up in August.”
(no response, so I try to save myself, thinking it’s an awful idea)
Me: “Yeah so they’ll be here around the time my mom’s here so…(awkwardly laughing)…It’ll be a party!”
Grandpa, finally unlocking his eyes from the TV: “A party? You mean like in the basement?”
Me, laughing: “No, grandpa. Like a party meaning a lot of people.”
(still terrified of him hating this idea)
Me: “…but it’s okay because we’re self sufficient and my mom will be here to keep things in order…”
Grandpa: “Have they ever been here before?”
Me: “Well, no, not that I know of. Not really for a vacation, anyway”
Grandpa, laughing: “OOOOHHHH so you’re gonna show them around then”
As if I’m some partier or something…Assuming I was throwing a party in the basement of my elderly grandparents, and who know what that “OHHH” was about. *shaking head*
I’ve spent 22 years with my own dad and for some reason I STILL pick the absolute worst time to talk to men about important things. But hey, maybe if I had his full attention he would’ve had the opposite reaction. The “party” in August is a go!
