“I was 15 and (thought) I was super cool. One day, a really cute guy I’d liked for ages finally asked me out, so being as cool as I was (!) I casually said yes. Then, I went home and panicked about what to wear, what to say, what to do with my hair….all the usual stuff. We’d decided to go to the cinema and I’d begrudgingly agreed to let my dad pick me up outside afterwards. I might’ve told my dad the movie ended an hour later than it did (I was banking on a bag o’ chips & a goodnight kiss). This cunning plan would’ve worked had my dad not forgotten the time I’d told him and checked the cinema listings in the local paper. After the movie, as we walked down the stairs to leave, I saw my dad standing there in the foyer in an old pair of shorts, grubby SLIPPERS and an old jumper he wore around the house. It wouldn’t have been so bad if he hadn’t hollered at me across the foyer in front of everyone. It was like telling the world…’the embarrassing parent belongs to her!’ Having your dad come into the cinema was seriously not cool. I mumbled goodnight to my date (no goodnight kiss for us) sat in the car in stony silence, and huffed the whole way home. Parents!”
