My father in law called yesterday while we were out grocery shopping and asked if I would drive them to the airport in the morning, and since I work nights it would be perfect timing so I said I would. I'm glad I was able to do it because paying for parking at the airport for a week is expensive and who really wants to leave their car there for that long.

I headed to their house after work and picked them up to take them to the airport. On the way they asked if I would stop at a gas station so they could buy something to drink. I agreed to stop and had to kindly decline their offer to by me one too because I needed to go to bed soon (which if you know me that was hare because I'm a diet coke-aholic). So my father in law heads into the store to get a drink for himself and my wife's mom. Mother-in-law stays in the back seat because I drive a two door car and it's not very easy to get in and out. We chat a bit and she says the usual things about how wonderful I am and how lucky her daughter is.... I have to preface this next part of my story with "She's a little odd at times". My wife always says, "My mother can be a little crazy but if anyone else says that I kick their ass". She says some odd things but what would come out of her mouth next would make me laugh on the inside and give me the boo boo jeebees all at the same time:

Mother in law (MIL): "So I had a dream about you last night... You were naked"

Mr. O: *Trying not to sound creeped out* "Oh My"

MIL: "Yeah. We came over to visit you guys and we brought some mice for the cats to play with. I was sitting there chatting with your wife and I looked over and saw you standing there naked"

Mr. O: *shutters*

"Then I turned to your wife and said YOU ARE A LUCKY WOMAN"

It is true that the little woman is lucky to have a "wonderful" man like me *wink wink* but it really wasn't something I wanted to hear from my mother in law.... *shutters*

I think I may be traumatized.

Mr. O

I AM a lucky woman.

My mother IS crazy.

And if anyone else says so I'll 'kick their ass!'
