Yesterday I had the ultimate test. Every
good or bad boyfriend thing I’ve done – wouldn’t matter after this one moment. *door creaks* So first, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Usually I fly home to PA for Thanksgiving but this year – Morgan thought it’d be good time for me to meet her parents. And I was totally cool with the idea. So… I was thinking maybe this year you could stay in town and we could go to my parents house. One second. *beep* *beep* That sounds like a great idea. Ok,
meeting your SO’s parents for the first time is terrifying. Like it’s stressful enough to meet someone’s parents but during Thanksgiving. Expectations are higher on holidays. Anyway, we were walking up to Morgan’s parents house. And I was so nervous about what was waiting for me through that door. *slam* *cocks gun* *gasp* Hey are you ok? You’re gonna be fine. Hi honey, so good to see you! Oh, and this must be Lance. Ok, you can learn a lot about a
man by his handshake. Don’t mess this up Lance. Wait is my grip firm enough? Does
he think I’m a wuss? Better tighten it. Oh God, so sorry. Oh
you’re fine just a bit of arthritis you know. Yeah so literally the first thing I tried to do was crush her father’s arthritic hand. So I met Morgan’s mom and she was lovely and I didn’t almost shatter her hand. So that was definitely an improvement, but we sat down for dinner and things got
weird. You know how when you first meet people. You like try harder to be part of
the conversation. Which is fine you want to come off as someone they can talk to. But in my case I may have over shared. So Lance you said you’re from Pennsylvania, right? Anywhere near Lancaster General Hospital? I had a cousin that used to work there. Oh yeah my dad just had a hemorrhoid removed there last week. So yeah things were not going well and I was kind of freaking out. But the biggest challenge was still to come. The casserole. Here we go everyone. This casserole recipe has been in our family for generations. Oh great, what’s in it? Pro-tip: if you’re given a random casserole that you have
to eat to be polite. Don’t ask what’s in it! Oh, it’s got a little bit of everything… turkey, yams, mayonnaise, beef lips and some other special secret ingredients. I don’t know how this woman got all of those things into one casserole. All I know is the end result was really gross. Oh, God. Don’t throw up, don’t throw up – just swallow it. You’ll be fine. Oh God you’re not fine. I’m gonna go check on the pies. Um… Morgan could you help your mother? Sure. Oh God this was it. He was alone with me I was gonna have to talk one-on-one. And I still had gross casserole filled up in my mouth. Spit it out and bring me your plate. What? Just do it quickly. *spits* *deep breathing* *whistles* Welcome to the family. Not a word of this to Morgan or her mother. Yes, sir. So I guess I’m part of the family. And I got to bond with Morgan’s dad. Her mom is really sweet a little too sweet. She insisted that I take home all of the leftover casserole. Hopefully this video helped you be less
nervous about meeting your SO’s parents. Or made you feel better about a time
that that didn’t work out for you very well. If you enjoyed it please like the
