I admit I did not watch the episode (Tampa Bay vs the Saints!) but could it be her ticket was one way? Or was the plan so stupid that it was never going to fly? Perhaps getting immigration advice off Reddit is not such a great idea, Andrew. (It pains me that he has that name as my son has that name and I can assure you my son is NOT a tool.)
Being empty nesters, we don't make a dinner every night, we kind of wing it. Having said that, I do NOT need anyone hammering away at me for my dietary or drinking choices. I like Diet Coke. Not the healthiest thing, but I like it. I don't drink*, do drugs, smoke, etc so I do not want ANY guff or my Diet Coke, thanks. As someone who had gastric bypass, all the nagging over food will do is send Mike to the McD's drive through a few times a day and hide the evidence. "I love you, you are perfect, now change! AND GIVE ME BACK MY RING YOU SLOVENLY FILTHY LOW IQ PIG!"
Maybe that is why, so far, I have a spot for Mike - in some ways (only some ways) he reminds me a little bit of my hubs: Six foot seven, LOVES his ribeye, loves a beer or brandy, loves a pasta dish, but loves a salad daily as well, just a chill dude with zero interest in organized religion but hey I am not gonna stop you from going to church.
* = this show is making me question this choice, lol!!!
I think you answered your own question, my friend!!!
As a shelter volunteer and foster dog/cat mom, I can't with the breeding at the "farm." Just no. And yes I think his parents expect him to live there/buy the place and be there forever and if he wants to paint the living room someday he better get their permission first!!!
