Well, That Stuff Can Be Addictive…

(I am known for being adventurous with my cooking, while my mother-in-law is very conservative. We are at her house for lunch; I have celiac disease.)

Me: “So, what can I eat here?”

Mother-In-Law: “Everything except for the breaded chicken, because it has soy sauce in it.”

(Many commercial soy sauces are thickened with wheat flour.)

Me: “Which soy sauce? I can’t eat most of them but some of them are okay.”

Mother-In-Law: “It was some name… I can’t remember… I think, cocaine?”

(Everybody bursts out laughing.)

Me: “And I thought I was the one who experimented in the kitchen!”

(For the record, she meant Kikkoman.)

(My whole family is at the hospital visiting my brother-in-law and sister after she gave birth to my niece, Josephine. My sister didn’t find out the sex before giving birth.)

Brother-In-Law: “So what do you think of her?”

Me: “She’s adorable! I’m going to call her Jo-Jo!”

Brother-In-Law: “Jo-Jo? No, that sounds like a stripper or something!”

Me: “Mmm… Yeah, I’m gonna call her Jo-Jo! That’s payback for not having a boy!”

Still Stubborn By Any Name

Brother-In-Law: *to my niece* “You could take a pony and a donkey and call it a ponkey!”

Me: “…You know that’s already a thing. It’s called a mule…”
