dog panties

B: I feel I slipped in to a kind of parallel world there for a moment.
Me: Yes? Why?
B: Well, when your mum was discussing the best way to modify that old t-shirt in to a little suit for the dog to keep her wound clean, I had this whole "Oh my god! My mother-in-law sews crotchless dog panties" moment.
Me: [has to pull over in layby in order not to crash car due to being incapacitated by laughter]

I do have photos. They're not very good, because Moss wouldn't stand still for very long; but I'll see what I can do with them tomorrow.

We're back by the way.

  1. That is exactly what my son-in-law would say! (And in the same horrified manner.) Thanks for a really good laugh.

  2. Sounds like a headline from The Star or somesuch rag.

    One of those moments when the world slips on its axis but the basis for a whole bunch of new "mother-in-law" jokes!

  6. Just to revert back to your last post for a sec: a dear friend's son and now her daughter have been / are going through the adoption process. We have sympathised with them every step of the way and a long hard road it has been. The son now has a lovely son and daughter - a few years on - and her daughter is still in the process. All I can say is it appears to be worth all the irritations and indignities in the end. You have my complete sympathy and best wishes. You should have waved when you were in Somerset!:)

  8. I had to come back to tell you about Grey's Anatomy. It is one of those serial soap opera type shows about a group of interns and other people in the hospital. The main character is Meredith Grey, and since Gray's Anatomy (the book) is the basic textbook for doctors, even the title of the show is a pun. It has its share of dramatic moments, but it is also the funniest show on. I am not a big tv watcher, but I will literally take a nap on Sunday afternoon so I can stay awake to watch it Sunday night. We usually steal your tv shows, so I had no idea you don't get to see this one.
