"well, my sister from michigan will be there - the bossy one.... and, of course, my brother-in-law, poor bastard, biggest mistake of his life, but THAT'S another story..."

-elderly man on a cell phone in a bob evans somewhere in ohio.

this is the same gentleman who started the conversation with, "yes, i've just checked inside my coat, and you're speaking with either 'medium' or 'harris tweed' here" as waves of "oh puh-LESE, you've used the same damn joke for 50 FRIGGIN YEARS" emmanated from his wife. heh.

i don't think they could see me laughing helplessly, no.

steff - what's a 'bob evans'?

bob evan's is a restaurant - along the lines of, say, perkins or country kitchen.

and, that's part of why i thought his comment was so VERY funny. igirly is from michigan. hehehehehe. but, no, i'm pretty sure he was talking about HIS sister, as mine's not married. *grin*

Well she's 'e-married' to Jon. Doesn't that count?

And when are you 'from' somewhere? When you've lived there 'X' years? And how big is X?
