Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a nice Easter. Last year, my mother decided that she wasn’t having Easter anymore, so we are all on our own. Bro #1 spent it with his fiancé. Bro #2 spent it with his in-laws. Sis spent it with her daughter. Me?

I played a role in “Meet the Parents”... LOL Actually, it was more like “Meet the Family”. I was invited by S to spend Easter with his extended family at his Aunt & Uncle’s home. Imagine waking up at 2am freaking out about meeting the family! Yeah, I did that. I was worried about what they’d ask me and how I’d respond. Whether I’d be grilled or not. Yikes! Being the quiet person I am, I’m not that good in social interactions, especially with people I don’t know. I met his father, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandmother. In her heyday, his grandma was a lounge singer/entertainer. His cousin and wife are rock band musicians from Chicago. His father has an occupation in common with mine. His aunt loves Scrabble and Gone With The Wind (like me!) Much to my relief, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. Dinner was excellent. After dinner, Scrabble came out and I was invited to play with his aunt and her sister. They’re hardcore! I knew as soon as they laid their first words. Ack. Needless to say, I lost! What made the experience special was the fact that S held my hand while we walked up to the house upon arrival, rubbed my shoulders a couple times in front of everyone, and helped me put on my coat before we left. Several times during the day, he told me how pretty I looked. Aww… Needless to say, I had a good holiday.
