Katie's parents are in STL for the weekend and we went out to lunch with them. She's from this area outside of Green Bay called Hobart. Anyway, she was oddly nervous about us meeting and I wasn't sure why. She's been out of the closet since she was seventeen and her parents reaction was basically, "Oh. We already knew you were gay." And they're totally accepting PFlag type parents so I was a bit perplexed about it.
Then we meet up for lunch at Cicero's and suddenly it makes sense. Her dad is full out seriously wearing a wolf t-shirt. One of those hardcore ones with intense graphics to make the wolf look more bad ass and he's not wearing it as a joke. It's just that he actually likes it. I mean, I didn't react to it. Like laugh or make a weird face but I could totally sense Katie being like, she's laughing inside and I hate my gf for it, but lunch was fun. Her folks are really nice and funny and her dad is sort of like one of those mad scientist engineers and I now can see why Katie has that tendency. Plus her mom completely has Katie's deadpan "WTF are you stupid?" type of attitude so it was cool seeing where she gets those aspects of her personality from which really amuse me and make me love her.
Anyway! We're in the car after lunch and I can feel
Katie glaring at me and I know it's about the wolf t-shirt but I say nothing then she just explodes.
Katie: He just likes wolves, okay?! He thinks they're cool! We don't say anything about it!
Me: I thought the wolf t-shirt looked very nice on him.
Katie: Fuck you. I knew you'd make fun of this.
Me: I didn't say anything! You're the one who brought it up.
Katie: He just likes wolf t-shirts.
Me: Does he volunteer at wolf sanctuaries?
Katie: I hate you.
So that was my afternoon. I'm not sure if Katie's mad at me but I didn't do anything you guys. It was all in MY HEAD
but apparently Katie knows me well enough to resent my thoughts at this point. lol. Oh yeah, and for those curious, I think I found a picture of the wolf t-shirt in question online. This one looks pretty close to it except it was blue instead of black and the outline of the wolf jumping was like... glittery silver? Awesome.
