Holy Awkwardness


Saturday is my sister’s bachelorette party. I have been planning for weeks. I have a pre-fixe menu at a really nice restaurant for an amazing price. We are going clubbing/dancing afterward. And I am going to the hairdresser on Saturday so I don’t have to worry about styling my hair!

Back up about 18 months to my bachelorette party. As my sister and I get out of our car to go into the restaurant we run into my cousins going to a restaurant next door. They ask why we are there and my sister says it’s for my bachelorette party. She then opens the gift bag she was carrying and shows them (I can’t see) some of the “stuff” she bought for the party in my honor. Stuff to make me wear during the party.

My cousin asks why she didn’t come to him first.

Let’s back up again. My cousin D (not to be confused with my hubs) has a few jobs. Lest you think he’s a failure, he’s actually quite a success.

Anyway, one of his careers is owning adult video stores. They are 20% family videos and 80% adult focused (behind a wall of course).

Well, naturally when planning my sister’s bachelorette party I contacted my cousin who said he would give my what I needed for free. However, he doesn’t work at the stores so my dad said he’d meet me there today since the employees would know him.

So D and I headed out to my cousin’s store. To go into the back room. To discuss my sister’s bachelorette party. With my father.

WITH. MY. FATHER.

(D stayed in the front section perusing the 1980′s movies for sale.)

I’ll leave to your imagination what was behind that wall. But suffice it to say, it is something I never wanted and hope to never again experience with my father!!

*ps. They didn’t have what I was looking for so I wound up paying and went to party city!
