There are two kinds of people: Those who keep you grounded and those who weigh you down.
So the meeting of the family happened last night.
Which was also the meeting of a bunch of people that Minh didn’t know either. Basically the whole evening was us sitting at the kid’s table (the youngest kid being like….18) and eating whatever was in front of us.
I tried a lot of oddly textured things, and also stingray. Fried stingray. And pig straight off the spit.
Apparently one of his aunts pulled him aside while I was saying goodbye to his mom and asked if it was serious between us. When he told her that we’d only been dating like, 2 months, her response was “well, she’s really pretty.”
So yay. At least someone in his family thinks I’m really pretty! I didn’t really talk to anyone because they were all busy either being men outside bu the fire pit or being women in the kitchen…and also speaking Vietnamese.
Today is the day.
I’m meeting my boyfriend’s mom.
Plus some extended family.
I keep finding thumbtacks in my bed. Not cool, man. Not cool.
