The Parents are Coming! The Parents are Coming!

MiddBlog is here to provide you with 5 Easy Steps to Ensure a Positive Fall Family Weekend:

Step 1: Hide the box of condoms as deep as possible in your underwear drawer. If possible, hide them as deep as possible in your roomate's underwear drawer.

Step 2: Clean your room. Just do it. Otherwise, Mom/Dad/Both Moms/Both Dads/Stepmom/Stepfather/Grandma/Grandpa/Aunt/Uncle/Cousin will feel obligated to clean up your pig pen. But whatever you do, don't let them put your underwear away.
(Did I get everyone? MiddBlog is trying not to be so heteronormative or enforce mainstream "values" on its readers.)

Step 3: Do your laundry. Inevitably, your family will want to take you (and 50 of your closest friends) out for a very nice dinner. Sweatpants and flip-flops are not appropriate attire for the Storm Cafe.

Step 4: Speaking of very nice dinner, MiddBlog hopes you made reservations. If not, your family will be taking you (and 50 of your closest friends) out for a very nice dinner in Atwater.

Step 5: Don't talk about your grades until Sunday.

That about covers it. Stay tuned for the next installment of MiddBlog: Fall Family Weekend Edition.
