Welcome to the family...

Warning: the following story is incredibly awkward!

Boy's father had heart surgery this week (He is doing really well). However the hospital where he was having surgery is over an hour drive from where his parents live, but only 20 minutes from my parents house. So, we invited Boy's mom to stay with us for a few days so she could get to the hospital easily. Ok, everything fine so far.

So, Wednesday night I am laying in bed and I really have to pee but, as usual, I only have on a T shirt and my undies. I'd like to avoid running into her in the hallway looking like a refugee. I know Boy's mom is still awake- I can hear her downstairs. So, I have this internal debate if I should find some sweat pants and throw them on to run to the bathroom. I decide against it. So, I sprint to the bathroom and Boy's mom is still downstairs and all is fine. Then, as I'm leaving the bathroom, I peak my head out to see if I can hear her downstairs still. I thought I did. So, I begin the run back to my room (again, only wearing skivies and a t-shirt). I turn the corner and BAM! there is Boy's mom at the top of the stairs and me wearing very little clothing. I said, "uhh.....hi." Boy's mom: "Hi." Then I sprinted back to my room.
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Awkward! Talk about timing. I mean, had I been one minute earlier or one minute later, none of that business would have happened!

I mean clearly she didn't care and i doubt she thought about it all after that. But still, my boyfriend's mother saw me looking quite unreasonable in a t-shirt and undies. Awkward....
Well, welcome to the family I suppose.

THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT! Ahh, now you understand my life. For all my awkward expertise, I'll tell you this was ideal in terms of awkward - she was busy thinking how above-and-beyond sweet you were to invite her to your home, to make it easier for her. She simply can't care as much about your undies as she does that you opened your home to her. So... still awkward, but the best-case scenario if something is going to be awkward.
