What are You Doing? Chapter 16: Taking Initiative.

Luna status: close supervision of the mommy!

Wine status: I'm working on this when it's cold and thinking about snowing, so chamomile tea. 

New character today! Abe Adamson, Asshole Plot Device's dad. Let's call him Smeghead (h/t to @dawbs for that idea). Artist's rendition (courtesy of @OnceUponATime):

We are back in the god damned park. Hooray! Smeghead wanders over to Nosy Busybody and asks him if he is nosy busybody. Ok, WTF? I live in a pretty small town, and there's usually people in our local park. I would never just wander over to some random person in a park and assume they were someone. I'm introverted, so maybe I am missing something and this is normal. Anyway, Smeghead has been thinking about all the things he has been hearing from Asshole Plot Device, and wants to talk to Nosy Busybody about his thoughts. Oh god. I'm headed for another boring rehash, aren't I? It's ok, there's only three more chapters. I can do this. 

Smeghead says that he agrees with Nosy Busybody's assessment of how things should go, and is blessedly brief about it. YAY! He says that Nosy Busybody's opinions has made him realize that he needs to get serious about getting Andrew married, and that very young marriages are ok.

Abe: A good question, although I have a feeling you know the answer. All of my life I’ve grown up with the idea that it was up to the kids to figure the whole thing out; but now I am seeing that I am supposed to be taking care of this issue, or, at least, taking the initiative.

Sakal: So, what are you going to do?

Abe: I’m going to go confront Pat with my problem.

Sakal: Good for you.

Abe: Or, rather, I’m going to ask you to go for me. Sakal: Oh?

Abe: If you’ll do it, I think it would be better. I’m new to all this and...well... don’t know it very well. If well, if Maydyn’s father starts to talk about a litany of things wrong with Andrew, I’m rather afraid I will just agree with him and walk away ashamed. I'm hoping you will be better suited to the job. 

 

Here's my thought process while reading: Ok great, Smeghead's gonna go talk to Salesman Headship and buy The Good Girl for his son. Gross, but not unexpected. Wait, what the serious fuck? Smeghead doesn't even have the fucking stones to fucking go talk to the Salesman himself? WHAT THE FUCK WHO THE SHIT ASKS SOMONE THEY JUST MET TO FUCKING GO ARRANGE A MARRIAGE FOR THEM??????? Holy shit, Mr. Ohlman really loves his avatar and loves to hear it speak. There were also some random thoughts involving Gary Stu and shitty writing. 

Nosy Busybody agrees, and then ASKS FOR SALESMAN HEADSHIP'S PHONE NUMBER. HE'S GOING TO GO ARRANGE A MARRIAGE FOR A PERSON HE JUST MET, WITH ANOTHER PERSON WHO HE KNOWS SO LITTLE THAT HE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE THEIR PHONE NUMBER. 

Thank god, this chapter is now over. They are getting super short as we get closer to the end.

Vaughan Ohlman is a creeper, Smeghead is spineless, and Nosy Busybody is a yenta. Blarg. I'm glad the end of this drivel is near.

This is painful.  In fact, I'm having dental surgery this morning, and it will be less painful than realizing that Vaughn Ohlman, who is a creeper, and his followers, have inflicted this travesty of a lifestyle on young adults.  Because they are pervs.

This says it all.

PS:  Love the kitty pics and illustrations!

      I have a deadly allergy to nuts. I have a hard time finding pre made meals that are safe. I have to make most things from scratch because nuts are like the Spanish Inquisition. 

      Great analogy. Ended up in the ER a few months ago in anaphylaxis because of surprise peanuts. It’s so hard to get food out!

    • Lori sounds like Erika Shupe with her purpose for everything. God gave men beards to keep their faces warm. So why does Ken shave off something that God gave him for a reason.

      Call me cynical, but I have to wonder if being active military would be on the minus column for potential suitors of the Phillips daughters, because it's real life and not role play. 

      I'm not sure wether the Phillips can afford to be picky about suitors anymore. Sure, they'll want someone with the more or less same believes, but beyond that Beall is probably glad when there is one less eater on her bill.

      As a daily wearer of blue eyeshadow (and blue mascara, liner and lipstick) I say F trends, wear whatever makeup, clothes, hair, etc. makes YOU feel good about yourself. 

       

      Disclaimer: if being On Trend is what makes you feel good, rock every trend you can find.

       

      Secondary disclaimer: I also have blue hair, so I’m very defensive about color-related grooming and this isn’t directed at any one poster 💙

      I am starting to question Dericks intentions for marring Jilly more. He seems to be saying that he “settled” for her.
