An unexpected turn of events
Yesterday was emotional chaotic. My cousin practically gave me an anxiety disorder giving me all these possible scenarios about what happened on the bus ride on the way home, as we were walking home together. He said things like, “-insert scenarios- Wow, he can’t even realize your voice! LOL, fail! -insert black girl voice- If I was his girlfriend, I would’ve dumped his ass RIGHT on the spot there.” and on and on, but it made me laugh.
Later as the night progressed (after the terrible eyebrows scenario… Still so fucking pissed about that), my parents told them about Michael to my family and how he’s my special friend. I was sitting in that hot seat for at least an hour, and it felt like an eternity. They asked me things about him and us and whatnot. Having a couple drinks that my father shared with me helped me calm things down though, so that was relieving. At the end of the night, a lot of the titos and titas were telling my parents and myself about how I’m a really good child because I’m so open and can tell these sort of things to my family (however, I did not tell them. They just asked, and I answered LOL) and how they wish their kids could do the same (in the future for relationships, since they’re too young). They said I was a good kid, a good role model for the kids to have such a good communication and understanding with my parents and all.
In a sense, I am
lucky blessed to have a family that’s welcoming as they are. If it weren’t for all the communication and understanding I’ve built with my parents (moreover my father) for the past God-knows-how-many years, they wouldn’t be as accepting as they are now.
