They Cancel Each Other Out

Yesterday we met my mother in law, Jesus Bill and another of Hubby's brothers for dinner. As I was getting ready to go, Son #2 said, "Some of your blog commenters are really attractive! Like Penelope. I mean, she's a MOM, and she's still very nice looking. I didn't think that was possible."

I gave him The Look. It requires one lifted eyebrow. And he continued, "Oh, I know, but you're not going to get any reassurance from me. You can get that from Son #1."

So, OK, Son #2 has put me in my place. Fine.

So then we met Hubby's family and that went fairly well. And as we left, Hubby's Mom said what she says to almost everyone, almost every time I see her: "Have you lost weight?"

It may be like "Have a Nice Day" or "Aloha" to her, but I'm taking it, OK? Just this once.

It's the wine glass in Penelope's photo that does it.

Oh my God I'm cracking up laughing! Bless that boy - he will go far!
Rol - shush! :P

Rol,
Nah, it's a combination of general hotness and a sexy European accent.

Penelope,
Thank you, I plan to.

Anytime someone suggests you may have lost weight you should take it. Every time.

Today someone told me, "You got huge over the weekend."

Yeah, I don't think you can go wrong with "Have you lost weight?"

And Alf - you're *supposed* to be getting huge!
