Who knew?

(Preface: In all of the back-to-school activities around here, I've met a few parents. I've heard about them and their kiddos all year from Russ who walks E to school but never met a lot them.)

New Friend: Oh wait, you're Eliot's mom??
Me: Yep!
NF: So, hold on,...he's adopted?
Me: Yeah, he's from Guatemala.
NF: Oh wow, this whole time I thought Russ had an exotic wife.

Poor Russ, 12 years with me when he could have been with a latin lover. Sorry Dear.

Hilarious. If another mom said the word "exotic" in speaking with Jeff, I might be a little bothered. :)

but who says that? really.

Chrissy said...

Exotic? As in...dancer? :)

Wow. Just wow. I'm already preparing my sassy comebacks for just this moment.

I was eating dinner at a mexican restaurant once and the waiter asked me if Flor's dad was mexican. My response was "Well, I never met him, but I don't think so."
