Trouble in Paradise

Look, Iain, I like you. I really do. I think we could share our true feelings and cuddle and everything.


I mean, you're pretty cute, and you obviously adore me. As you should - but I digress.

The thing is...and I hate to say this...but I have to express my true feelings.


Your Mom has to stop coming on our dates. It's weird. And look at her grinning like a maniac. I can't deal, Iain. If this is how it's going to be for us - if you can't cut those apron strings and be your own man - I don't think "us" is going to work out.

Love,
Callie

Regarding your comment on my recent post, I agree -- personal connections make all the difference! That's really interesting about your friend marrying into a Sikh family (did I spell that right?!) and the warm reception she has received.

On a totally different note, wait a couple of years and you'll love having your son make you scrambled eggs for breakfast! :) If I get out the eggs, turn on the stove and start the pan heating, my daughter can do the whole thing. Gotta love it!

I hope you had an easier time leaving a comment. I changed it back to the comment form I used to have instead of embedded comment boxes, after you said you had problems.

Iain,

Let her have the remote. You don't want this one to get away!

Dude, Madeline is gonna boil somebody's rabbit. PROMISES WERE MAAAAAADE.

Dude! Obvy, Callie's thinking about dumping Iain over The Mom Thing. So if Maddie's ok with a little chaperonage, she's in like Flynn.

What does that phrase mean, anyway? Is it vulgar?

Miriam said...

"In Like Flynn" references the swashbuckling entrances of 1930s and 40s movie actor Errol Flynn, who made many a movie about pirates and buccaneers swinging in on the rigging ropes, usually to rescue some damsel in distress. Course, later it did take on a sexual meaning after his trail for raping a teenager...

Very cute, the kids to.

Dude, like my tiny lady is gonna go out with a guy who still lives with his mom.

Fiona said...

Dude! Your tiny lady still lives with her father!

Iain does not enjoy getting the Hairy Eyeball every time he wants a cuddle. I suspect he'd insist that your tiny lady move out, too. And share the remote.

THAT'S TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
