Um....thanks? I think?

On Friday evening I was out to dinner with my grandparents, who were in town for a short visit.  We were having a lovely discussion about the arts or our family or the memorial service at which my grandfather was to eulogize the next day, when, out of the blue, I received a text message from my friend Ashley.  Ash's husband Jason is....well, I don't think it's a stretch to say that he's a fan of me.  As evidenced by this:

So Jason and I were just discussing the new show on TLC, "Sister Wives,"** and he says to me 'I wish Hannah could just move to Saint Louis and I would become a polygamist.'

How do you resume talking about funerals after that?

After some thought, I decided to take it as flattery, rather than a sign that I should invest in some Mace. And after further thought, I decided to share it with all of you, because it cracked me the heck up.

**This show looks horrifying, by the way.  


  1. A huge compliment, for defs. You and Ashley must be good friends, and Ashley and Jason must be a strong couple to both discuss and then share with you that particular compliment!

  2. I am reading this at work (shh) and literally had to bite my lip to not burst into hysterical laughter. What a flattering statement!

  3. Oh my forgot the bit about the yoga pants...

    I sent him a link to this post, can't wait to see his reaction!
