Filed under: I can’t believe I forgot to blog about this when it first happened.
A few weeks back, the wife and I took the mother-in-law looking for houses in the area. While visiting one place, the homeowner/realtor pointed out a rather huge birds nest way up the tree in the front yard. I remarked: “Wow, some raptor definitely lives there.”
She looked at me with her head cocked, not unlike my dog when she’s confused: “Huh?”
I took it down a notch: “A bird of prey.”
Same look from her: “Huh?”
“A big ass bird that eats other animals.”
We left shortly after, though not because she was an idiot, but because her house was shite.
