I spent the day with the boyfriend's aunt. And she's sweet. But she really really really really really really hates Obama. I mean, I'm not a fan, but I just don't know how to respond to a woman who gets HOSTILE about Obama.
It makes me want to hide any kids that occur from my relationship from her just in case she thinks one of them looks like Obama and she eats them.
I guess what it is for me, is just the surprise that she isn't liberal as I thought she was(?). I don't argue politics with family(even if they are my boyfriend's). I either will say "Oh, at least they aren't Bush Jr(bad idea!)" or "I really really love this chai tea you gave me...where did you get it?".
It's only a matter of time until they ask me my faith, and I'm so scared. His grandfather(on his mom's side) is a pastor. Really awesome guy, really sweet. The wife? Tammi Faye Baker BEFORE she grew a brain. But she's nice enough when her husband is there.
I guess my worry is that they won't like me too much. I'm the typical southerner: I say yes sir/ma'am or no sir/ma'am, I try to help, and I cook pretty well. Aside from my atheism and uncanny knack of walking into walls, I don't see where they'd think I'm...odd.
Maybe I'm just worried cause I'm a black atheist...in the south..I dunno. I'm so freaking tired. Who knew watching two comedies back to back, eating pizza and drinking tea were soul draining adventures?(they aren't, I just felt like a fish out of water again.)
