A funny from over the weekend

April 13, 2009

We noticed that while my in-laws effused with well wishes they did not explicitly congratulate us, which made me happy beyond measure.

So I commented on it, to which my FIL said, “Well, I used to congratulate parents-to-be until this one time that I said it to an expectant father who had just found out he had one on the way. And he looked at me, shrugged, and said, ‘We were drunk.'”

It made him realize, he said, how absurd congratulations could be in a significant number of “announcements,” and he hadn’t done so since.

I got a good laugh out of this. My father-in-law, he is wise!
