Default Truth and consequences

Okay, Bethany went up north last Friday to visit some relatives in NY. I think I know what's coming next. *Sigh*. Why do some people, after they've grown, consistently keep trying to please their parents? It's a mystery to me.
Anyway, I've been wrestling with this damn mmx200 and attempting to get the mb to see the 40 gig hdd. Spent all weekend and a case and a half of beer on it. Think I've got it figured now, but god only knows. We'll see.
Bethany's father calls me at work yesterday. Wants to meet after I get out. I go to this nice little bar, sit down, and have a drink with him. He asks me plain and simple, what my intentions are. I put the bottle down and stare at him incredulously.
"Are you nuts? First she's over 18, in case you hadn't noticed. Second, I'm in love with her."
He stares at me and asks if I intend on marrying her.
I look back, "eventually."
He stands up. "That will never happen. You're not right for her." Drops a dollar on the bar and walks out.
Sheesh. I sat there shaking my head, finished my beer, and headed home.
We knew this age thing was going to be an issue, but I didn't expect her father to take this attitude, at least not to this extreme. Her mom seems to like me, but I can see the reservations in her eyes. I guess me and Beth need to talk when she gets back. After all, I don't know if I'll ever meet anyone who turns me on mentally and physically the way she does. But I don't want her totally destroying her relationship with her parents. Anyway, back to work. I just wish I could stop thinking about this.

Whoa. That sucks, Life. Hey, all you can do from stuff like that is move on. Hang tough.
