A Different Way Of Laying Pipes

, , , , | Related | October 5, 2017

(I’m in my twenties and still living at home after college. I’m a pretty timid person, and haven’t had many relationships of any kind, even by this age. However, an online friend and I have become rather more than just friends, and I take a trip to meet him in person for the first time, since I have a friend in the area who can shelter me in case things go awry. Thankfully, they don’t, and when I return home, this conversation happens.)

Dad: “Was it nice to see [Friend] again?”

Me: “Yeah! We had some time to catch up; it was nice.”

Dad: “And things went well with [Boyfriend]?”

Me: “They went great! He’s going to visit here in a few months, we think… and, um, if that goes well, I might move in with him down in Oklahoma.”

Dad: *after a moment of thoughtful silence* “Well, sweetie, I’m glad you finally got your pipes cleaned out.”

Me: *absolutely mortified* “DAD!”

(I’m all for acknowledging your children as adults who do adult things, but that was a bit much!)
