Awkward Family Story: The Plunge

We were staying at my in-laws’ house over Easter. They live in a small town. During the afternoon when 17 family members were there to visit, I needed to use the bathroom after a pretty large meal. I stopped up the commode with the copious amounts of toilet paper required after the deed. My in-laws, unfortunately, did not own a plunger, and all the shops in town were closed for the Easter holiday. So, my father-in-law used his arm to unstop the commode.

Awkward.

Awkward Family Story: The Cure

On our first trip to my boyfriend’s hometown to meet his parents, I developed a killer migraine. The headache was so bad, I couldn’t keep any medicine down due to severe nausea and vomiting.

After a few hours of watching me suffer with the headache, my boyfriend (now husband’s) father came up with what he thought was a wonderful solution: giving me migraine meds via a suppository. That’s right: my future father-in-law (who is a doctor, by the way) was offering to insert medicine in my butt.¬†Awkward.

Miraculously, upon hearing his offer of help, I decided my migraine was cured.
