I had dinner with the in laws last night and as always it was entertaining to say the least.
The major topic of discussion was that my 15-year-old nephew was caught in the possession of condoms. GASP!!!
My sister-in-law, or SIL, was okay with the condoms themselves, but not the fact that he left them in the basement rec. room where his four-year-old sister could (and did) find them. Her concern was that he might be sneaking girls in the basement door after everyone else was asleep. Something that she, the hubby, and their younger brother all did at one point or another in their youth.
I totally supported her on this one.
The mother-in-law, or the MIL, or the Holy Mother,on the other hand was aghast that he would have them at all. I am not sure if it was the sex or the Catholic stance on birth control that had her rosary beads in a knot. Since I am one that really lays things out there, I simply stated that there in NOTHING that she can do to stop him from having sex if that is what he wants to do and she should be happy that he is obviously taking precautions.
I did chicken out of telling her that the hubby and I have offered to supply such items. Don't ask, don't tell. We may have in fact subsidized the recent nookie.
In other news, my 9-year-old niece suggested her mom find a boyfriend on ebay and Patrick's "band", who have no name and have yet to have a practice, are thinking about "touring North America" this summer. With regards to the first story, I think he is only in it for the groupies.
