Dating and the Single Parent

Real girl talk inspired the following story:

“Sherry” knew the relationship was moving in the right direction when “Dwayne” invited her and her daughter to Thanksgiving dinner with his family.  In preparation of meeting Dwayne’s Mom, siblings and cousins; Sherry meticulously groomed her nails, hair and choosing the right outfit for the special occasion.  Sherry knew all about Dwayne’s previous romantic relationship with “Shelia” who was a staple within his family household for quite some time. 

Upon arrival at the family home, Dwayne’s daughter beamed towards her dad’s lady friend.  The adult daughter took Sherry by the hand and led her to the middle of the living room floor.  Wanting to be the one to make the introductions, Dwayne’s daughter announced for all to hear; “I’d like to introduce you all to Shelia and her daughter.”  The room fell into a deafening silence.  The mistake was made and the giant elephant had entered the building and not one person would acknowledge the faux pas. 

Sherry pretended as if she was just not called another woman’s name.  She proceeded to take a seat on the sofa next to Dwayne. During the course of the holiday celebration, people continued to address her as Sheila.  Sherry pulled her cell phone from her handbag and furiously typed a text message.  Immediately after firing off the text, Dwayne stood up from the sofa and made his own announcement.

“My lady friend Sherry as said if one more person calls her Sheila; she is going to cut someone!”

Not one person ever made the same mistake again!
