I’ve been invited by my folks to go and see the brand new and apparently ridiculously funny Bafunny Bafunny comedy show at the Grand West Arena on Friday night featuring the best comedians that South Africa has to offer right now, with a little pre-dinner at the always fantastic Indian cuisine restaurant Bukhara. Thing is… they’ve told me to bring along a date.
Maybe its their attempt to get their boy, as they’ve termed it “a little bit of stability”… All its really done is caused me angst and worry about who to take.
You see what makes this type of evening endeavour different from a normal dinner (at least in my mind) is the fact that my parents are coming- meaning that if I do bring a girl along they’d be going on a “date” that would involve “meeting my parents”. EEEEK! Not they’re deformed or from the circus or anything… its just the connotation that I’ve come to associate to this over the years has been one of a move towards the pursuit of a relationship of somesort.
Now this what I want to know… Do girls indeed take “meeting the folks over a dinner” as an indication of a wanting to move into the relationship realm or am I just being over-analytic? Don’t get me wrong, the choices sitting at the front of my mind girl wise are all fantastic in the own special way and well worth sharing toothpaste with each offering something unique if I really had to think about it (which I havent. ha)… I’d just like to know what I’m getting myself into, when I choose a date for this Friday!
And just to add to the mix there’s the fact that I’m probably going scream like a little girl from laughter at the line-up’s crazy jokes and skits… Not very attractive at all. I think I may just take one of the guys instead.
Aaargh… damn you parents for having such good taste while being so cunning.
