"How was the flight here? Did you have any trouble getting to your gate or anything." (Danielle)
"No. The flight was pretty smooth and you know I always get to the airport super early to make sure I'm not rushing around." (Grandma)
"I talked to my baby Ian a little while ago. He said he would stop by later. How often do you two see each other?" (Grandma)
"At least once every couple of weeks. Now that he has a new girlfriend, it's a little harder to catch up with him." (Danielle)
"He mentioned something about that. What's her name .... Rachael?" (Grandma)
"No, it's Raven. Mom, would you like something to drink? I could fix you some tea if you like." (Danielle)
"No. I will wait until dinner is ready. Will Roderick be coming by tonight?" (Grandma)
"Yes. I had him stop by the grocery store to pick up a couple of things. He should be here soon." (Danielle)
Moments later, Rod appears holding a grocery bag.
"Well hello. You must be my future son-in-law." (Grandma)
"Yes, ma'am. That would be me. Glad to finally meet you after all of those phone conversations." (Rod)
"I agree. Feels like I already know you." (Grandma)
"Well let me put the groceries down and I will come back and give you a proper hello." (Rod)
"Hi, honey. Thanks so much for stopping by the store." (Danielle)
"No problem. I take it everything went smoothly at the airport. (Rod)
"I got there a little late, but she was relaxing in the Gold Suite. Come let me introduce you two." (Danielle)
"Okay, but first...." (Rod)
"That's Rod. He and my mommy are getting married." (Julian)
"So I heard. You seem really excited about that." (Grandma)
"Uh huh." (Julian)
"Honey, uh huh is not a word. Say, 'yes'. Can you do that?" (Grandma)
"Uh huh. I mean, yes!" (Julian)
"Mom, meet Roderick Taylor, the man I hope to spend the rest of my life with." (Danielle)
"Well anyone who makes my daughter happy is alright in my book. So about that proper hello, I was hoping it came with a hug." (Grandma)
"That goes without saying." (Rod)
Rod and his future mother-in-law embrace in a friendly hug.
"Mom, I'm hungry." (Julian)
"Dinner is just about ready. Go wash your hands and you can help me set the table." (Danielle)
And with that, the long anticipated wait for Rod to meet Danielle's mother is over!
