Meeting the In-Laws

**From Mama Kat’s writing prompt: Describe what it was like meeting your in-laws for the first time.**

He had been flirting with Her all summer long at work. She knew He had a girlfriend, but still. She just wanted Him to dump the stupid girlfriend and marry Her. That’s all. But She would wait and see what happened. They had been talking all summer about their shared love of rollerblading. He kept saying “We ought to go sometime!” Well that day finally came. He asked Her to go rollerblading one afternoon. She couldn’t wait.

It was at least 95 degrees and humid the day of their scheduled rollerblading outing. It was so freaking hot. She put on a pair of shorts and a sports bra and headed over to meet Him. This is what She always wore to workout…especially when it was hot. She thought nothing of Her attire because She was just going to sweat.

When She got over to His house, He met Her at the door and said “I can’t go! But come in!” His sister needed a babysitter and He volunteered so He couldn’t leave the house. But He still wanted to hang out so She went in and sat down. They chatted for a bit and laughed and then…

His whole family walked through the door. His Dad, his Mom, his sister and his brother-in-law.

And She was sitting in a sports bra. Midriff completely exposed. Oh. My. God.

She was horrified but what could She do? She wasn’t planning on meeting them that day or else She would have never worn JUST a sports bra! So She said hello and chatted nervously for a bit and then got out of there as quickly as She could. How embarrassing!!! What must they think of Her? In a sports bra? Good Lord.

She strapped on Her rollerblades and rode off down the street, sweating her ass off and thinking that She’d possibly just met Her future in-laws for the first time…in Her bra.
