At the restaurant we had some awesome food, and when we got there Teacher and Jacket (his friend & singing partner) were ready to go on stage. I think as soon as they started my mom was impressed. It wasn’t until later though that she leaned over and told me, “I’m feeling it.” I asked, “Feeling what?” She simply said, “Feeling it.” LOL I love my mom. I know that was her way of saying that she approves of Teacher.
Then he solidified her approval. He sang the following song in a perfectly bluesy slightly churchy style. Mom was hooked. She even leaned over and asked me, “What did you tell him?” Evidently she thought that I had said something to Teacher when he and I were outback taking a smoke break. 😉
Just so you know, I rarely introduce men to my family, especially to my parents. Of the few that I have introduced to them, there was only one who they actually liked, and we all know how that turned out. So I really don’t hold much faith in their opinions on who I date. In this case however, since it was only my mother, and not my father or sister giving their approval, I do hold a lot of faith in her opinion. Not that it would stop me from seeing Teacher if she hadn’t of approved, but it sure doesn’t hurt to know that he gets momma’s stamp of approval.
While we were enjoying our dinner, my mom did mention that the reason my sister was acting like a spoiled brat was because she didn’t want me to get hurt again. Personally I think that’s just some bullshit line she fed them to make herself out to be the caring supportive sister. If she cares so much why doesn’t she act like it and instead of being a bitch, just meet him first and then tell me what she thinks of him. She hasn’t even given him a chance. No, she just wants my mom and aunt to think she’s the level-headed one who can do no wrong.
They aren’t as naïve as she thinks. They know that even though I’ve made mistakes, I am almost a decade older than she is and I’ve had a lot more time to live my life, albeit in a more adventurous way. I live and love passionately, and I’m not going to apologize to anyone for that. I’m certainly not going to regret any decisions that I’ve made that have helped lead me to Teacher.
I worked it out perfectly so that they could leave early and I’d stay and ride with Teacher. As mom and my aunt left, my mom waved goodbye to Teacher. OMG. She approves! Hallelujah, praise Jeebus, and thank the Lawd Almighty! Now let’s go to church! Preach it Al!
Happy humping & praise the Lawd y’all!
