“Let’s clean up your room a little bit.”

1. You both hug like you haven’t seen each other in 20 years.


Which may or may not be too far off.

2. And then she inspects you from head to toe.

Luckily, you cleaned up beforehand. Right? RIGHT?

4. And, as predicted, she feels the need to help you “tidy up, just a little.”

5. She questions some of your life habits, like what you eat and how late you go to bed.

6. She also lightly critiques your posture.

7. And your overall appearance.

11. And you slowly introduce her to your world and your adult life.


12. But you stop doing your planned afternoon of sightseeing after 30 minutes because she’s too tired.

(And it’s kind of adorable.)

14. And she takes them out to dinner because she wants everyone to be happy.


15. You eat waaaay fancier food than you’re accustomed to, because she’s got the bill.

16. And she makes sure you have plenty of food left over for after she goes home.


17. Overall, you have some unusually low-key and enjoyable nights of staying in.

20. And she gives you the most honest advice you’ll ever get.


21. But she’s also there to listen to things you can’t tell anyone else.


22. And she shows you that she is always thinking about you.

23. Sure, she reminds you of the things you have to work on, but it’s only because she knows how great you can be.

25. And you’re already planning her next visit.
