While driving to work this morning while listening to the esteemed Chris Moyles, the subject of discussion was that of fathers meeting the boyfriend of their daughter for the first time, and the fun that could ensue. One suggestion was to get all the other members of the household to sit on the sofa and stare at him without saying a word. Another one was to sit cleaning a shotgun while engaging him in conversation about your axe collection. At this point the mrs to be turned to me and said, "i can see you being a right git to our daughter." I struggled to control the car as i came to terms with this prediction. Firstly, I always thought i was a big softie really. Secondly, DAUGHTER?? Wtf??? when did that happen (no, she wasnt trying to tell em something thank god!) Anyway, how did/will you treat the young love of your precious daughter? Give him a matey nudge and wink a la monty python before making sure they are undisturbed for as long as they like in her bedroom? Or will you sit in the corner staring without blinking with only a facial tic to show you can actually move, and growl quietly whenever he says something? Alternatively, how did your potential father in law treat you before you turned his princess to the dark side?
