VD hilarity part 1 (no, not THAT VD. Valentine's Day!!)

Had a fairly uneventful and borderline pleasant day. Then, MIL came over. Check out this card she brought -

Yes, I apparently am "daughter". I am simply a gratuitous quotation mark. Do I want to be daughter? Definitely not. But, I really don't like being called "daughter". As it turns out, the verse inside the card indicated that this was a card for a son and his common law wife. (By the way, we will be married for 15 years this fall. It said things like "couple", me being a "part of their son's life", etc. I don't think she realized this. That got me thinking about what kind of card I could have gotten her for the big anniversary...

Have a "happy" golden anniversary.
To a "special" lady.

Hope you enjoyed "your" hotel room.

How very odd- I had no idea they had cards specific for common law wives.

Super "funny"!! It made me "crack" up! It really did.

Cindy said...

Oh, that is SO funny!! Sort of like "son and that woman who lives in his house." She does sound like a special one. We need to hear more about her.

Rachel said...

OMG. That's priceless. I second wanting to hear much more about your MIL.

Swistle said...

Love it. I am always looking for ways to cheese my mother-in-law while appearing to be a devoted daughter-in-law. Must investigate use of quote marks.

Heather said...

Oh man - my MIL would definitely send that to me too!
