I am 28 male, my mom keeps asking me when and if i will ever get married and have children because she wants Grandbabies. she has even gone as far to say "well i know how much you Love Japanese & Korean" - "maybe i can get you a mail order bride or two?" i was like huh? LOL

when i took my dad to PMX07 for my first Con (D&L) were there when they came in to sit at the (Anime Jungle Booth) my dad asked "those girls are a Japanese Band?" im like NO DAD they are GUYS! his face went red and was like oh,"why do They look like girls then?"

when my mom saw Morning Musume in a PV i showed her a while back my mom said" aww they Look like little Dolls" i asked her "why they looked like dolls" she said "cause they are so tiny and cute" lol

when i played a Morning Musume Song (Rainbow Pink) while i was driving my mom somewhere she Busted up Laughing - i said"why are you laughing"? she said "these 5 year olds sound so cute" she would NOT stop laughing for bout 10 Minutes (Seriously) They are Not 5 they are OLDer then 5.

this is not from my parents but from a really Good loooong time friend of 22 years. he is not into Con's or cosplay or anything except cars really. but anyways - i decided to show him what Cosplay looks like and my collection i had so when i showed him 2 of them he was like wow thats cool, not to bad. then when i showed him my Crossplay (without puting it on) he was like HUH? you wear a dress? I tried and tried to explain it to him. but he wouldnt listen he kept says weird things. so now every now and again when we go hang out he will ask me "aww your not going to wear your dress for me while we go hang out?" i just tell him to SHUT UP. he does not offend me cause ive known him soo long but STILL...

While making my DBZ Armor costume, my father recently asked me why those guys didn't just fight each other naked. I gaped at him for a few seconds before working up the courage to ask him why.

"Well, you know, I don't live under a rock, Jen," he told me. "I've seen that show before. When you were so ga-ga over it a few years back, I sat down and watched a couple episodes to find out what it was like. I saw a bunch of constipated-looking weirdos glaring and monologuing at each other for a while, before blasting each other with fire and blowing their clothes away. That armor you're making probably isn't meant to be real armor at all. They just wanted the most flimsy vests they could get so that they could show off their manly hairless chests at one another the quickest."

My dad thinks he's a comedian. -_-

So many times.

Except sometimes my mother complains that I never like the girls. =/

Here's a conversation that I had with my host-mother from when I was staying in Japan:

"Will you marry a Japanese boy one day?
"Uhh. . . I don't know. . ."
*Get's excited* "I know this really cute boy! You can be his girlfriend!"
". . ."

/Conversation.
She asked it completely out of the blue and was completely serious, but I didn't have the heart to tell her that I have no attraction to Japanese boys at all.
Though it was awkward at the time, I can look back on it and laugh now. . . Then she emails me again and asks me if I want to meet up with this "handsome young man". :/

On another note, I apologise if this post sounded rude or offensive at all as that was certainly not my intention.

Unlike you guys, my mom is in NO HURRY for me to have kids. In fact, she required me to go on Birth Control despite being in a relationship WITH A GIRL.

Srsly mom.

As for funny things... my dad calls me "son" when i crossplay. Love that.

And... my dad has this weird thing where he signs all his text messages to me. Like, ending them in "Daddy" usually. But they sometimes get weird. Like "Daddy Babes" and "Daddy Daddy". Or my favorite, "Daddylicious"

When I first started high school (I moved in between 8th and 9th grade so I just met these people), people suggested I ask out a Korean student because I happened to like anime. :HEADDESK:

When watching Pokemon many years ago, my dad commented: "They all have those pointy and sharp noses, don't they cut themselves on them?" xD Though to be honest, a lot of anime have pointy noses.

And when shopping for cosplay clothes(for Canada) at a second-hand store:
Mom: "Um... that's a men's jacket?"
Me: "...yes? (Well, he is a guy...)"
Mom: "Well, as long as it fits the cosplay..."

I've referred to the character as "he" and "him" every time, and shown pictures. I though that could maybe be a hint towards the character's gender, but I guess not...

When my sister and I went to an in-town convention our dad brought lunch to the hotel for us [<3 it was a life saver] and while he was waiting for us to come to the car he was "taking pictures of all these wierd people in costumes..."

He totally took a picture of my sister's friend. xD

Oh! And my sister has big steel toed boots for cosplay and our dad is always warning her not to attract the attention of authorities. xD He's always saying, "You're gonna get picked up by the FBI if you keep wearing those."
