How to Scandalise Your Parents

So what do you do? Simple. Read this statement, and learn by rote. “This topic of conversation will not be entertained without a picture and details of a boy.” If that fails there is an easy alternative. Look your relative squarely in the eye and firmly state,”I like girls.” No offence to LGBTQ. If you’re a boy, you can say boy. This is just to throw them off your tail.

The real surprise happens when you innocuously share a post with details about characteristics matching those of your dream guy.

About time. Don’t you think? It’s been a while since you scandalised your parents 😉 because it is Awesome
