1. Sure, use the old copycat excuse to air your dirty laundry . . .

OK, you can relax now, it's out in the open and we still like you.








So . . . did it work?

3. You can say . . . I won't tell

But because of your response, I gather the purchase wasn't so embarrassing after-all?

5. I once had to buy a pregnancy test.

That old joke about the kid buying condoms only to get to his gf's house for dinner only to learn that the pharmacist is his gf's daddy. It was a lot like that...but worse.

I'm at CVS buying the aforementioned pregnancy test (because I'm the good supportive responsible boyfriend) when behind me I hear a familiar voice. It's my girlfriend's father and he's talking...and thankfully he's not talking to me. Then the guy he's talking to speaks and my heart is in my throat. I think maybe I can get away with this. I put my purchase on the counter and I hand the clerk the CVS card and I debit for the purchase. Into the bag. I'm safe. Just as I turn around, I realize the bag is translucent and you can read the label on the box through the bag...and I'm facing not only Mr. gf's dad. I'm also facing our parish priest who is her maternal uncle...and neither of them says anything. Dirty pregnant pause.

"Have a nice day, Chan. We didn't see you there."

Oh, but I'm sure they did see...and a few weeks later, I broke it off. Then I hid.

6. No stress in that scenario.

Talk about wrong place at the wrong time. Dang!
