I love it that my parents are a strange mixture of conservative, but also very liberal. Having said that, I still get a little shocked sometimes. Like last night:

My parents are visiting Europe, and last night was my uncle's 70th birthday party. And I took the train up there to join my parents at the party. I was wearing a pair of shoes I just bought, cork wedge shoes, with little bands of gold sequins.

So I am standing next to my father, talking with him and my 40 year-old cousin, when my dad looks down at my feet and says: "Hmm...are those your F*ck Me shoes?" I think I turned about 20 different shades of red and stared smiling in shock at my father. And my cousin busted up in hysterics...which I probably would have done, had someone else's father inquired that about his daughter's choice of footwear.

I didn't know what to say. I felt like I had my hand caught in the cookie jar. Anything I said would be futile.

For the rest of the evening my cousin was taunting me and pointing out to anyone who cared to listen that those were my F*ck Me shoes.

Thanks, Daddy.

*Sigh* Well, I always say, my personality didn't come from nowhere.

I don't get it. I must be lost.

But I do like the Kentucky shirt.

So, you got new ones? Or do you have different pairs of that sort now?

Yay! You made me laugh. That is something my dad would do... Has done and probably would do again and again... Its both a neg and a pos for living with my parents again.

Can you imagine a southern preacher looking at his daughter's shoes and saying that? Yap! lol. I thought the whole congregation was going to fall out of thier pews... wait, we weren't at church! :P
