Someone On The Train Smells Like A Car Freshener

..you know, that fake pine scent? Eww. Anyways, the clock turned to 5.45pm and all of us left the office in a flash.

I'm now on my way back home and have had a fairly interesting evening yesterday and afternoon today. Today is the day of the revealing, where the grasshopper tells his folks about me. Yep, everything about me, even down to the dirty little details of my divorce and *gasp* age.

It's going ok so far. His mom just cautioned that we might be rushing things (what exactly we might be rushing, I don't know), and that we ought to take the time to really get to know each other before deciding on committing to a lifetime together (a lesson I have already learnt and a mistake I care not to repeat again).

He's told her a summarised and somewhat censored version of how we met, they know I'm older, but he's yet to drop the bomb on my marital status. I'm not too sure how they are going to take this information, but I hope it's openly and without any judgement.

Ah well.

His mom wants me to call her, and I'm not quite sure what to expect or how I should behave. Lol. I'm asking him to repropose a Skype session instead, with him around just in case. Methinks that might be better (yes, I'm worried about getting a grilling from her).

If she's agreeable, we'd do the Skype chat tonight because my macbook is going to the shop tomorrow. Let's see how that goes. :D
