Update

Well, the p0rn is no longer coming to my house. Thank God. Apparently, my dad decided to give it to a young, single guy he knows. So my dad will no longer be the king of p0rn. What a relief.

In other news, I have a three hour conference call today that starts at noon. Could this day suck any worse? Wait, don't answer that.

OK, that's what your dad should have done to begin with. Did it not occur to him that you would be much better off not knowing that it exists? I still can't get over this.

Shelly said...

Jess - No, I don't think that occurred to him at all. And I can't get over it, either. Right now, I'm doing the very mature thing and avoiding his phone calls.

Alice said...

haha, i'm with jess, i can't believe this somehow worked out as "remotely OK" in your dad's head in the first place :-) i would KEEL OVER AND DIE if my dad asked me to store his p0rn. EEP.

Shelly said...

Alice - I KNOW, RIGHT?! I can't believe he came to the conclusion that it was ok to ask me that. I really do not know what to say to him.

I can't believe that he actually asked you to hold it all in the first place! What was he THINKING?! Gross!!! Now he is forever going to be My Dad, Who Had 200 Porn Tapes. Egad.

Thanks for coming by my blog the other day! I'm sorry I wasn't able to stop by yours sooner. :)

Shelly said...

Astarte - no worries! Welcome! Yeah, I know. I still feel weird about it.

Not that you ever watched porn, but just think that if you did... you'd NEVER again be able to watch it without thinking of your dad.

I mean... I've dated guys who had a "porn trunk", but 10 boxes is just so darned funny.

Shelly said...

Hyphen - I KNOW, RIGHT?! I mean, I'm not "into" p0rn, but I don't mind it and if hubby ever wanted to, I'd watch it with him. Except now, all I can think of is my dad. EWWW.

I know! 10 boxes! I cannot get over it.

This is great news except for the part where we don't get to see pictures and find out how many tapes there were.

Shelly said...

Swistle - I know. I was a little disappointed myself. That was going to be an awesome blog series, damnit.

Been thinking about this since I saw the original post. Not to bring the mood down or anything, but is it possible the church he's having trouble with is the healthy one? His asking-- and asking you, specifically, makes it sound like his "trouble" is related to his apparent porn obsession.

Shelly said...

bzzzzgrrrl - I don't really know what the trouble is. I don't want to say much on here, especially since the last post blew up, but I think everything is going to work out for the best. It's his job and his life, and I'm not really getting involved.
