It's Monday. It's been a long, slow day. I think it's time to lighten things up a bit around here. So, dear readers, I pose a question to you:
What's the dumbest or most bizarre thing someone has said to you recently?
Here's mine, courtesy of my mother-in-law. Who is a really lovely person, but comes out with the most off-the-wall things from time to time.
Scene: Mr. Jane and I are talking with his parents. Somehow, the topic of Mr. Jane's childhood obsession with Legos comes up.
Mother-in-law: Mr. Jane should take up that hobby again!
Jane: (laughing) I have a feeling Mr. Jane won't have much time for hobbies, at least not for the next few years!
MIL: He will if it's a girl.
Jane: (totally not following) Huh?
MIL: Well, if it's a girl, then he won't have to play with her! Because girls play with dolls and such, not Legos and blocks.
(You will be happy to know that I resisted the urge to bring out the Clue Stick. Mr. Jane, bless his heart, jumped in with the appropriate comment at that point. What that was, exactly, I don't know, because I was too busy shaking my head and saying "no, no, no!")
OK, now it's your turn!
