Putting Him Through The Meat Grinder

| Romantic | November 11, 2013

(I bring my boyfriend home for dinner. My parents are strict Asians who don’t approve of me dating and my boyfriend knows of this, which makes him nervous about making a bad impression.)

Mom: “[Boyfriend], I made fried-rice. Have some.”

Me: “Mom, that has meat in it.”

Mom: “So?”

Me: “[Boyfriend] is vegetarian.”

Mom: “So? He can eat around. It’s fine.”

Me: “But it’s cooked in—”

Boyfriend: “It’s okay.”

Me: “But—”

Boyfriend: “I can eat around it.”

(I shudder to think of the consequences he had to pay on the toilet later to try to not to offend my parents!)
