The strangest thing I've heard in a long time

One thing you can never have too much of is a good hard laugh. I share an office with one of the funniest guys I know. He's a great story teller and he has some crazy family members, which is a winning combination for me who loves a good story!

Today he was telling me about a time that he and his wife went to lunch with his grandparents. (I don't actually remember who he was at lunch with, but I know it was family and there was a crazy old lady, so we'll stick with grandparents). Well, his grandmother is a nice lady, but she is super traditional, super opinionated, and has a problem with, among many other things, gay people. Well they were eating at a restaurant in an area of Dallas that has a large gay population and a couple walked in that she took offense to and she said "I just can't believe this! They're everywhere! They're like vampires!"

I'm serious. That's what she said.

Oh my goodness, I laughed so hard. There is not a word in that statement that makes sense.

First of all, VAMPIRES AREN'T REAL crazy lady! Are you kidding me?

And what does that even mean? Has she ever been chased down in the middle of the night by a pale gay person with no reflection who wanted to suck her blood? Just the thought of it is so absurd, I had no words. Only giggles.

Brett and I bought the Halloween Mister Potato Head tonight and it comes with a vampire costume. It reminded me of the crazy lady.

Oh Crazy Lady, you're so crazy!

Speaking of vampires, you need to read the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. You'll LOVE them!
