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.

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.
