Awkward Family Story: Nice One, Sis

One Christmas when I had just turned 14, my grandma and grandpa flew all the way across the country to celebrate with our family. There were several long lost family members there including my younger sister and I who are 10 apart in age. As all of us are just sitting down for our dinner, my grandma looks at the table and says “Oh, I’m going to feel like a glut after this meal!” In turn my little sister pipes up with “I don’t know what a glut is, but I know what a slut is! As everyone at the table is trying to hold it together, she finishes her comment with “My sister’s one!!”….yeah, awkward.

Awkward Family Story: Big in Texas

My mother was a beautiful woman but of low self image. To compensate for this, she liked to wear revealing clothing. We still tell stories of the backless “Victoria Secret” dress my mother would wear to pick us up at school. Still knowing all of this, I invited my future husband (then boyfriend) to meet my mother. I tried to build her up for him, saying she was tall and good looking… so we walk up to her door and ring the door bell. The entrance is a good 6 inches higher then the entrance step. My mother throws opens the door and is wearing nothing but a string bikini made out of the Texas Flag, star on one DD size boob, red and blue strip on the other exactly at my husbands eye level… Awkward.

Awkward Family Story: The Funeral

When I was pregnant with my first child, my Grandma passed away. I didn’t have anything to wear to the funeral, so I had to settle on a low-cut maternity blouse that made my breasts look enormous and made me very self-conscious. After the funeral, one of my aunts approached me and in front of the entire family, loudly announced: “You are getting a fabulous chest!!!” I turned six shades of red and blurted out defensively, “I can’t help it. Since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve gone up a couple of cup sizes.” She was actually referring to a chest of drawers that I had unknowingly inherited….um…yeah…very awkward.

Awkward Family Story: The Ornament

For Christmas my moms entire side of the family gets together. One Christmas when the family was exchanging gifts, my great aunt came over to thank me for the ornament I gave her. She said thank you then took a second look at me and my cousin sitting next to me and told us we’d make a cute couple. No one really knew what to say. Awkward.

Awkward Family Story: No Easy Listening

My friends and I were going to go to a concert one weekend, but the night before my Dad insisted that I spend the night at his house so I could attend my younger sister’s third birthday party. Of course, my friends had to come with me.When he was driving us back to his house, he pulled out a CD and said he heard it was the hip music. It was Fergie. As the song “Fergalicious” played, we all sat in awkward silence.

As if that wasn’t awkward enough, when we got back to his house he read that there was a parental advisory on the album, and apologized to my friends if it was offensive. Not offensive, just the most awkward car ride I’ve ever experienced.

Awkward Family Story: The Drive-By

I got my first car at 16. The next morning I wanted to drive it to school. So I got in my car and drove to school. When I looked in my rearview mirror my dad was following me! I pulled into the parking lot of my high school and my dad pulled in too. I was parking when my dad honked the horn at me. All my friends and the other kids were staring at me and my dad. My dad got out of his car, told me that I wasn’t parking right, got in my car and parked my car in my high school parking lot in front of all the teens looking on. Then he got back in his car and drove away! Very Awkward.
