My fiance was pretty hyped about meeting my family, but I wasn’t nearly as hyped as he was.
I tried to talk him into not meeting my family, but it wasn’t working. He insisted we go to my family’s for dinner and enjoy ourselves. I looked at him and asked that he said nothing about being an HVAC technician. After a few chuckled, he kissed me and told me I worried too much. We were barely in the house when my mother nearly tackled me. I hadn’t seen her in a couple of months, and it surprised her I had finally made it home. She asked who the handsome man was, and I told her this was the boyfriend I had told her about. He grabbed my arm and asked why I didn’t tell her he was my fiance. It was for the same reason I didn’t want him to say he was an HVAC technician. My mother was an opportunist, and if she could use someone, she would. When my sister showed up, she nearly gushed over my fiance. She told him what big muscles he had and said she wished she had met him first. Mark blushed, but he assured me he wasn’t interested. When she looked at him a second time, she asked if he was the HVAC technician she had seen in the grocery store last week? I told him it wasn’t because he spent the entire week with me, which had everyone looking at me oddly. I had to tell them the entire truth. Before we left, my mother wrangled my fiance into working on her HVAC system, and told me she adored him.
