Hi guys, it’s me. Been a while, I know, but keeping this short…
So I’m sitting in my big chair trying to watch TV, but my daughter’s boyfriend/fiancé/whatever is here waiting for her. It will be a couple of hours before she gets home and we have absolutely nothing to say to each other. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
It’s freakin awkward! If it wasn’t for the dog snoring, you could hear a pin drop.
So I’m watching Oprah's LifeClass, but not comprehending what Oprah is trying to teach me about life because I feel this pressure to break this silence in the room and strike up a conversation with my future son-in-law (OMG, son-in-law! Did I just say that!).
Me: "Do you like Oprah?"
Him: "Well, I don't hate her."
That's it. I've run out of things to talk about.
The dog's awake now. I think he senses the tension. He’s sitting in between us as if he’s about to referee an MMA fight.
