BioHo and SD25's dwindling attendants Part Deux
SS19 just left. He came to pick up DH's truck (borrowing it to help a buddy move some furniture) and stayed for lunch. DH is sleeping. We have a ton of barbecue pork so I asked SS19 if he wanted some lunch. What 19yo, hardworking young man turns down one of his fave (and free) foods? Because he loves them, I also made him some tater tots.
SS spotted DH's tie for SD25's wedding on the ironing board and said, "Is that Dad's tie for the wedding?"
Me: Yes. He bought one instead of renting.
SS: I just cancelled mine.
Me: Phew! You've only been dating gf a few weks.
SS: ~grinning~ Yeah, we're not ready. I cancelled the tie.
Me: You did?
SS: Yeah. I'm not in the wedding.
Me: I thought you were a groomsman.
SS: I WAS, but mom told me I'm out. THANK GOD!
I couldn't help it - the laughter sprinted from my belly, up my throat, and out of my mouth.
Me: How do you really feel, SS?
SS: Man, Ani, you know I hate those monkey suits. Gimme jeans and flannel!
Me: I know how much you luuuuuuuv your flannel. That shirt gets any more holes, you'll be able to strain firewood through it.
SS: This is my favorite!
Me: I can tell!
SS: Maybe you can fix it? ~laughing~
Me: Sure. You saw some logs really thin and I'll patch it up. Or superglue it on top of another shirt.
So SD25 didn't have to give anyone the boot. 'Ho did it for her!
