LJ: And you think YOUR girlfriend's dad is scary...

Diana answered the door wearing a toga, and I couldn't help but love the moonlight on her. "You look great," I said, my toga for the party looking like the bedsheet it was.

"Oh, just something I had lying around. This is my aunt--" She was tending the hearth, and waved from there. "--and my dad."

"Brian," he boomed. As he shook my hand, there was a pop of static. "Be good, honey." He kissed her cheek.

"You know I will," she replied. I led her to the car, suspecting that there was zero chance of getting laid that night.

Real-life postscript: my father-in-law is a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, formerly military police, and he has an M.A. in psychology.

Only slightly less scary than a Roman god.

Thankfully, I'm not the son-in-law who required a shotgun wedding.
