My dad seriously made me want to disappear a few months ago when he finally met my boyfriend. We arranged to go out to brunch–I even picked a cute ’50s diner that I knew my dad would love–and I figured everything would be fine. I mean, really how much can a dad embarrass you at one brunch? A lot, apparently.
My dad and his wife were there when my boyfriend and I walked in, and immediately upon introducing him to my boyfriend (who happens to be pretty tall–much taller than my dad, actually), my dad made this exaggeratedly shocked face, guffawed, and said:
“Gee, guy, how’s the air up there?!”
I could not believe of all the things he could say, like, um, maybe “Hello” would have been a good start–he had to make some corny joke about my boyfriend’s height. I wanted to die.
