Dear Mouthy Housewives,
Last weekend I was staying at my husband’s parents’ house and my father-in-law accidentally saw me getting out of the shower—-naked. Now what do I do?
First of all, ewwwww. Second of all, you can stop freaking out because I really don’t think your father-in-law seeing you naked is that big of a deal; I’m sure that type of thing has happened to a lot of women. In fact, now that I think of it, I may have even seen something like that happen in a movie once. Okay, so the movie was on Skinemax at 1 a.m., and it was called “Father-In-Law Fantasies IV,” but still—-no big whoop.
That is, no big whoop unless you’ve noticed a change in your father-in-law’s behavior ever since he saw you shakin’ your soaped up money maker. For example, is he now eager to sit right next to you at dinner? Has he mentioned your Hello Kitty pelvic tattoo in the family newsletter? Or, God forbid, has the old man recently taken your husband aside and said, “Son, I noticed your wife doesn’t seem to believe in Brazilian waxing, but if you ask me, she’s a really great candidate”?
If any of that has happened, change your name and move to another state as soon as you’re done reading this post. Trust me.
However, if nothing of the sort is going on and your FIL has remained silent, my advice is that you take the same approach. After all, bringing up the shower scene will just embarrass you both all over again, and odds are he’s already weirded out by what happened. Since he’s also probably very worried that he’s upset you, it’s best for you to just pretend it never happened.
But don’t be surprised if he gives you a really, really, really big Christmas gift this year.
