| Related | December 22, 2011

(We’re sitting in one of the study rooms, drinking tea and watching the garden. We start discussing how to best feed the birds. Note that we own a free-range cat.)

Sister: “We ought to put up a birdhouse.”

Mother: “Too much work. Can’t we just put the seeds on the ground? It’s stone, and doesn’t get wetter than a birdhouse.”

Me: “We can’t. Think of the cat!”

Mother: “Why? The cat won’t eat the birdseed.”

*awkward silence*

(To her credit, my mother got it a couple of seconds later.)

(I’m lying in bed with the guy I’m dating. He physically picks me up and moves me to the outside of the bed. I usually sleep on the inside by the wall, so I raise my concern.)

Me: “I have to sleep on the outside? What if I fall off the bed?”

Him: “Don’t worry, I’ll make sure you don’t fall off.”

Me: “Aw, that’s sweet.”

Him: “Yeah, I’m going to tie you up. Then you won’t be going anywhere.”
