Twitter user @dropsnopanties is a stepdad and, if his recent thread is any indication, a master storyteller. He began his tale with a compelling hook, which every story needs – his stepson had a girl spend the night but hadn’t managed to smuggle her out, and now the rest of the family was awake.
Instead of throwing a penalty flag, the stepdad (who clearly has a sense of humor) sat back and waited to see what would happen next – and so did the rest of us.
The scene was set, and he wasn’t sticking his neck out for an 18-year-old kid who has his own consequences to suffer.
Then he started this poll, and I honestly can’t believe that many people were rooting for young love.
And the saga continued as we all wondered how long she could hold out before using the bathroom.
We were all rewarded by her identity and A FRIENDS TO LOVERS STORY OMG MY FAV.
It ended when Mom didn’t mention – or notice – their brief appearances and went to lie down for her well-deserved post-cleaning Saturday rest.
Romeo and Juliet escaped…this time. I hope their tale ends up with less murder-suicide.
Score one for young love!
