Things My Mother-in-Law Said in the Last 20 Minutes…

My mother-in-law stopped by tonight to discuss a party she’s planning. And, per usual, hilarity ensued. Here are the more entertaining statements she’s made so far tonight:

1. Hillary needs a face-lift!

2. I made the mistake of pointing out I don’t like when she says “hamburg” instead of “hamburger.” Her response was: “hamburg is the one you use to make tacos and stuff with, right? The patties are called ‘hamburger.'”

3. Greta Van Susteren shouldn’t have had a face lift.

4. I don’t think you need to vaccinate a baby in the first month–that’s too much vaccine for one tiny baby. They pump in three at the same time!

5. Also, over the last 20 minutes, she has called me by the wrong name five times. FIVE TIMES!

And although she was funny tonight, the funniest thing she’s EVER said to me was the story about how she “Tommy Boyed” her car door.  She opened the door to her car, then backed it up closer to the pump and bent it all the way backwards until it fell off. She actually did that. In REAL LIFE!

BREAKING: Benjamin Button is Based on a True Story

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.
