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.
