Default "out to family" update

So I was on the phone with my mom the other day, and I started referring to the woman I'm dating as "the girl I've been dating." My mom let it go a few times, but I kept using that phrase until she finally asked "wait, what do you mean by 'dating'" and I said "the same thing anyone means when they say dating. Like, we're interested in each other romantically. Don't worry, Erwin knows and he's ok with it." ... few seconds of silence ... "well, as long as Erwin is ok with it, that's all that matters."

Me: "Besides, I've never believed in monogamy. It just doesn't make any sense to me, I've always known I could never do monogamy."
Her: "Actually, that's what I think too. I mean, who wants to be with just one person for ever? Where's the fun in that? I was only ever monogamous because I didn't want to disappoint my parents..."

Gralson: my husband (works out of town).
Auto: my girlfriend (lives with her husband Zoffee).

The most dangerous phrase in the English language is "we've always done it this way."
