Day 29 — My television is showing the same show on every channel. I really don’t mind watching ____________ (from the 1960′s) and I really love this show because…
aww dude! I never watch TV! I definitely don’t watch 60′s shows. At best, I used to watch 80′s shows like “Quantum Leap” and “Married with Children” and “Dallas” and “MASH”.
I think I escaped it long enough so I’ll pick the alternate question instead.
Your daughter tells you she is bringing home her boyfriend for dinner. When they arrive, she introduces you to a man who is not your same race. Sometime during dinner she announces that they have been married for the last six months. What bothers you more? The difference in race or being excluded from the wedding
I would not mind the race difference as long as he’s not a Pakistani or an Arab with 20 other wifes. I am prejudicious against Paki men as there are so many of them in Britain. And they are leecherous men, even when married or in a “stable” relationship. I would not want for my daughter a man like that.
As for the Arabs – I would want my daughter to have a husband that will kiss the ground she walks on, not hurdle her together with other women so she will always be in a competition for the bed and the attention.
I’d love if the other race would be Asian (taiwanese, japanese, coreean – even chinese) and it would be absolutely great if the dude would be from Hong Kong! They have beautiful men out there! Tall, lean, smart *drooling here*. Hopefully he would not be shorter in height than her!
Now back to the question – the race would bother me only if it would be of the two types above. Otherwise, I couldn’t care less as long as he loves her. It would bother me that they did not come to me for the wedding so I could see her coming down the isle and I could see her father giving her over.
I would also be pissed about not knowing the guy but I would respect her instinct and their marriage and for my own sanity I would make them re-do the ceremony (without the paperwork of course)
