Boyfriend Meets Dad

Here's how it went down.
The play-by-play, if you will.

7:05pm - Phone call to V-Dizzle telling him to come downstairs at 7:15 because I will be there
to pick him up so we can head to Fasha's house for his birthday BBQ.
7:15pm - V-Dizz texting me that he has no idea what he's supposed to wear.
7:40pm - I'm belting out songs by Adele in the car as I'm trying to patiently wait for
V to get his butt in the car.
When, what do I see?
I see what looks like a 45 year old with a white button down tucked in to his jeans,
dressed as though he's on his way to church.
Oh, no wait...that's my boyfriend.
7:41pm - He asks if this is okay.
7:42pm - I ask him if he's on his way to church.
7:43pm - He runs back upstairs to change into something that's more fitting, sans tucked in shirt.
7:50pm - Finally on the road. Holding V's sweaty, nervous hand.
8:15pm - Stop at the store to get wine for Fasha.
V insisted he couldn't show up to my father's birthday bbq empty handed.
8:17pm - V ran to the "gift aisle" and grabbed a blue bow to place on wine.
(really?)
8:25pm - Princess Sophia greets us. Immediately looks at V-Dizzle. Hugs him and says:
"You so biiig. And so haaandsome."
Completely unexpected by me, but pleasantly pleased.
8:27pm - Fasha meets Verner with a firm handshake and a slight awkward hug.
8:28pm - V gives Fasha the wine. Fasha looks happy.
8:30pm - Fasha tells V-Dizz that he looks like "movie star," Yul Brynner.


8:29pm - Fasha asks Verner what he thought about me when he first saw me.
8:30pm - Verner scrambles to come up with an answer other than: "I thought she was a hot drunken mess wearing a bikini and cowboy hat."
8:31pm - He comes up with: "I thought she was beautiful and had a lot to say."
(thanks?)
9:00pm - Presents and cake. Fasha feigned surprise when he saw the ostrich boots.


9:10pm - Awkward photo shoot that doesn't quite produce the results I wanted.


9:15pm - The REAL fun begins.
Fasha tells us we all need to head to the music room to practice our Korean song.
9:17pm - It has been decided that Mishi is going to have a SOLO part in this song.
9:18pm - I begin sweating profusely and develop red splotches on my chest from nervousness.
(have I mentioned I don't like singing solo in front of people?)
10:30pm - Have practiced the song 147 times, complete with microphone.
I glance at V-Dizzle and he seems to be having the time of his life.
8 Koreans and him.
All together.
As one.
Magical.



10:35pm - I quickly make my goodbyes so I can head home.
10:38pm - Sophia runs outside to my car and says something like this:
"Meeeshell...money."
I took that to mean she wanted to give me money.
No. Not the case at all.
She wanted money from ME for my father's ostrich boots.
Oh yes, how could I forget.
10:40pm to 1:00am - V is analyzing, dissecting, picking apart every move he made that night
and asking me if he did okay.
(it was kinda cute how much he cared about making a good impression.)

Success.
And if he stays with me after that evening...I think it's safe to say he kinda likes me.
