Thursday, November 02, 2006!

So, SW is off to Cebu City tomorrow to meet, for the first time, D's folks. Probably about time after almost 3 years (by far a relationship record, I'll have you know), but SW is not without some trepidation. It could well be fun; it could well be a weekend of cross-cultural awkwardness. Were I a local lad, I'd be expected to address them, initially, as "sir" and "ma'am"... but that won't happen. Nor do they expect it -- they know I'm not local -- but D's helpful advice is "just don't address them at all."

Stay tuned...

good luck SW and good luck D

I still find it odd addressing my in-laws by their first names and I've known them for 5 years.
