Cousin Hector

I remember shortly after my divorce my fathers cousin Hector had come to visit us. Although my father had long passed on Hector and his family continued to keep in touch.

While during his visit my mother, Hector and I decided to go out and grab some dinner at a local restaurant. It was at this time good ol’ Hector decided to start questioning me about my failed marriage.

He asked me if I “had been close to a guy before”. I without thinking said “Sure. Not as close as my ex but close nonetheless.” I didn’t want him to think I had just jumped at the first guy that came along because that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

After pondering for several weeks on why he was in my business I began to wonder, “Was this fool asking me if I was a virgin when I got married? Right in front of my mother?”

The hell was his problem?

Sometimes people are just ridiculous. Unfortunately, family is more ridiculous than the rest.

If he was going to be THAT nosy, he might as well have come out and said it, instead of using that vague wording.

MP said...

lol that's too funny and you told him that you were closer to your ex's! lol

CC said...

Yep, that's why I don't talk to fam about who I'm dating. Especially male family members. That was very rude of him. And what would your answer have to do with anything!?

I just love how people lost their sense of tact along the way... oh , and also how sometimes it takes a few weeks for us to understand what someone is really saying sometimes.

I do that all the time :-)
