I read this article and thought... a lot of things.
“I’m not looking forward to my mom’s face when she meets my boyfriend,” said Evelyn Larson, senior economics major. “She always frowned upon the idea of me having a boyfriend in college, and here we are, three years strong, and she has no idea that he exists.”
Larson hopes that her honors status, graduating with a reputable 3.6 GPA, will outweigh her surprise boyfriend. She plans on attending an early breakfast with her mom that morning, feathering her mom’s mood by reminding her of what a smart, beautiful and hardworking daughter she has.
“I hope some good food and a talk reminding her of how ‘I couldn’t have done this without you’ will be good enough preparation for what I’m going to drop on her when we get to the ceremony,” Larson said. “I think I’ll first introduce him as a good friend, and hopefully she’ll get the point. I hope she gets the point.”
- Fifty bucks says her boyfriend is sick of this state of affairs/there's possibly an ultimatum going on.
- Not sure if dropping the bomb AT graduation is the best idea--maybe wait until after the ceremony. Just in case.
- Good luck to ya. God knows I know what's it's like to have your parents dislike your boyfriends.
