Stick and I went to Scep and Katie’s house just after our lost-baggage adventure and just before our marathon Wii session. Scep’s mom, my “aunt”, came in, and after the obligatory China questions and hugs, I remembered that I have a plus-one.
“This is my boyfriend, Stick,” I said.
“I know that, I met him before you went to China,” Scep’s mom said.
“Right! You did! Check me out! I’ve had a boyfriend for so long!” There may also have been a happy dance.
“Yes, that’s very surprising.” Scep’s mom said. “I wasn’t expecting that.”
