I was just turning 16 and my Mother was perfectly ok with the idea of me going to see a movie with Sigel...Sigel had come to the house and asked if it would be ok and everything. My Dad, however, tried to put his foot down and say I was too young but my Mom was all, "EXCUSE YOU? I said she could go and I am her MOTHER! You weren't there and he's a nice young man...so she's going!"
My father objected to the look on my face when I saw Sigel....apparently it was kinda obvious I was totally infatuated. It's hard for a Daddy to see that look on his baby's face. He saw that look on my Mom's face way back when and knew what it meant.
Still, it did give me a cute story to tell my kids and it all worked out pretty damn awesomely.
