It’s happening. Every child’s worst nightmare — except worse, because I’m not even sure I really have a problem with it.
Let me explain.
My partner and I are both in our mid-twenties. But over the last few months, we’ve been acting like a couple of old fuddy duddies.
To be specific, my Dad, 53, and my Step Mum, age unknown.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with my parents, or their relationship. They’re a fantastic example of a strong, loving marriage and I enjoy their company immensely.
But, how should I put this… they’re a bit lame. Brutal, but it’s the truth. Nothing gives a parent greater joy than embarrassing their children, and similarly for a child, paying out their ‘rents for all their daggy behaviours.
