MIL from Hell, In Training.

Boy Child and I were on a walk last night. It's a bit chilly here in East Tennessee (chilly for us anyway) and we both had on jackets. Boy Child told me, as we made our way down the winding road, that he was not allowed to wear his hood up while he was in school. He wondered, aloud, what the reason for this could possibly be. I gave him my thoughts.

We came upon a family on the path. A large family who seemed completely unconcerned they were covering THE ENTIRE PATH and totally being rude. But whatever. The Boy Child moved behind me as we passed and I said to them, "Good evening!"

The totally ignored me.

Okay, not true. They looked at me. And said nothing.

We walked on.

"That was kind of rude," said the Boy Child.

"Yeah."

"Do you think they think we're in a gang?"

"Excuse me?"

"I have my hoodie on. Do you think they think we're in a gang?"

"Son. My hoodie is PINK. What kind of gang would we be in? A PowerPuff Girl gang?"

He considered that for a moment.

"We can be in a gang that likes to bake and loves Jesus," he decided.

"Good plan."

He then did a high kick and shouted, "We kick ass for the Lord!"








Y'all. I'm not positive. But I'm pretty sure that there will never, ever, EVER be anyone good enough for him.

I swear Steph, he cracks me up! And, by the way... can I join your gang? I'll have to buy a pink hoodie though... What's the initiation? Can I bake cupcakes while singing hymns?

Can I be in your powder puff girl gang?

That is so funny and something my brother would have said. :)

Good gravy, between yesterday and today...you've got to put up a warning, I nearly wet myself.

If the age difference between your Boy and my Girl weren't so vast, I would think about raising her to your specifications, just to be part of the family.

I hate rude people.

I often hold the door for people. It's how I was raised. So when they walk through without even a thanks for a nod, I thank myself for them . . .

"You're WELCOME!" I bellow. And then I smile . . .

Twisted, I know . . .

Any chance he might want to go exotic in his bride selection and go for a gorgeous Canadian gal six years his junior? It's going to be hard to find someone good enough for Emma too.

Yes, there will be someone good enough. My Miss-Miss. There's a six-year difference, but they can make it work. :)
