Let me count the ways I really can NOT stand the daughter's boyfriend. I mean, I *really* can NOT stand the guy. He's ten years older than her, but has the mentality of a dorky retreaded 14 year old teen. No, wait, that's insulting to all the 14 year old dorky boys out there. At least the 14 year old dorky retreaded boys I know ALL LOVE perogies!
Rebel's BF on the other hand, won't even try and take a taste of a perogy. Seriously, a perogy. A bland potato cheese filled perogy. He's eaten ravioli, he'll eat mashed potatoes, ( without gravy) but he REFUSES to try a perogy. And THIS Ukrainian Canadian mother is NOT impressed. Not at all! How inoffensive is a perogy?!
Yeah, I have friends who don't like them, Nova Scotians mostly, who find perogies bland - I don't get it, but that's okay. They've tried them. My nephew eats them fried with soy sauce, and the XSU taught the girls to eat them with ketchup. sigh.... But this guy... this developmentally delayed 31 year old my daughter insists she loves, won't eat one single perogy in any way shape or form.
Related to the perogy is the eggroll.. a Chinese perogy! We were out for Chinese food for Rebel's birthday and he took one bite out of an egg roll and proceeded to spit it out! He wouldn't eat and swallow the bite he took out of an innocuous ersatz Chinese eggroll. I might add he also spit out three other bites of food he took and didn't like.
I am compelled to ask, if he won't even take a taste of a perogy, what the hell else is wrong with him?
Moving on .
I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.
