Am I a Focker?

I am living a Meet the Parents moment this holiday weekend.  If you are familiar with the movie starring Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro you know that Ben Stiller, who plays Greg Focker, spends a weekend meeting his girlfriend’s parents.  During the weekend, despite Focker’s best intent, everything that can go wrong, goes wrong. 

I am spending this weekend with Michael’s family.  I am meeting them for the first time.  Oh God, I hope I am not a Focker.  I have the best intentions…but heaven knows that the best of intentions can go awry and the weekend is still young.  

In the movie, it all ended well for Focker as his good intentions were ultimately more valued than the comedy of errors the weekend became.  That gives me hope.  I really care about Mike and I like his family – if I end up being a Focker, I hope that my good intentions will save the day. But just in case, pray for me please…and pray for Mike’s family. ;-)

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.

    what the hell you worried about, you two are a match made in heaven…if anything, they will be intimidated by your showing of affection. The more you worry the more you will screw up…..just enjoy…and if things get really bad….just tell her every time I start my car I am reminded of you………….it says “air bag” ha ha ha…all will be fine…..

    Kevin is right–relax and just be you. It’s so easy for those of us who have that all behind us to say that, but I’m pretty sure you could turn any mishap into something fun. Cheers!
