Okay, that was total click-bait. I apologize. But it’s one of my favorite stories about my Mother-in-Law, Dot. In honor of the Oscars, I thought I’d do a movie post. The other day, my step-daughter texts me in the middle of the day and says: “Grandma just said that Benjamin Button is based on a true story.” Not only did she think Benjamin Button was based on a true story, but when the kids said, “no Grandma, that’s impossible,” Dot proceeded to look it up on the internet to prove them wrong. Of course, she was unable to prove them wrong because…nature.
For those of you unacquainted with the story, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button it’s about a man that ages in reverse. So, most people would not consider it possible for that to be a true story.
This is a regular occurrence with my Mother-in-Law. She says ridiculous things, or she does ridiculous things and we all laugh. She is literally one of the nicest people to walk the face of the earth, but sometimes she just has these endearing “Ditsy Dot Moments.” It keeps things fun around here. And, no, she does not read this blog. Probably a good thing.
