Introducing The Family.

So, I’m home tonight.  I just finished up with dinner at my favorite watering hole with ATrain.  We are doing very well…   so well in fact, that I’m taking him home to “meet the parents”.  I was thinking about it tonight, I’ve NOT introduced my parents to anyone except GFP in 5 years.  Tomorrow I’m taking the ATrain home with me to meet the parents.  5 years.  5 YEARS.  I keep repeating it because I can’t believe it.  My EX never came to Utah with me – I think he thought my family was beneath him (he was spoiled and elitist IMO), the last time he did was 2007.  That means that my parents haven’t met anyone that I’ve been with or dates in the last 5 years.   I know, I keep saying it, it’s just so surprising. No wonder they all think I’m a lesbian!  🙂

BTW, ATrain is Jewish, my parents are Mormon. I didn’t even know that there were Jewish people until I left Utah..  needless to say, there wasn’t much of a Jewish community in Provo Utah in the 1980’s… 

Finally, I should be working, I have a  TON of work to finish up before I can call it a night, but I wanted to share this momentous occasion.  I will let you know how it goes. With any luck, I’ll be able to take time away from work and actually do something fun for a change… like blog!

    Hello Paula, this is news indeed. Meeting the family is a time homered tradadition that all adults and childen must experience, or suffer through. I have noticed that your new gentalman has drawn repeated comparison to you Ex. He seems to be a true measurement of what is good in your life. Someone who by many events in your life will always be measured by but not compared to. My prose false me now but I think you understand what I am getting at.

    About the Jewish issue I would worry not. They will be so relieved your not gay they will be rushing out to buy some gafiltafish and matza balls for his visit. I jest as I doubt such things can be procured in the beehive state. I also love it when one family stereo type is surpassed by one that is more socially acceptable.

    I hope you have a great trip and Atrain gets to see the parts he loves in you in your parents. Make sure to update once you return and have a break at the coal mine (your work).

    Be well H.S.

    Good luck!

    If your family gets difficult, tell them he can *prove* he’s Jewish if necessary. 🙂
