Come Again?

This is too funny not to share! Ok, so those of you who know me well know that I get all sorts of strange comments from patients at our chiropractic office (for instance...I once had a patient tell my 18 month old that he was "short and fat just like his momma". No, I'm not kidding. I also had a patient ask me (right after I'd had my hair cut) if I'd gotten a haircut, and I said yes. She said, "Oh, well it will grow back." Seriously...not kidding). Well today while leaving church, Channing and I were walking out with the boys, and a lady looked at our boys, smiled, and said to us, "Aren't you glad they're not ugly?" Then she followed with, "Your kids are really cute." Then she smiled some more and walked off.
Um...how do you answer that? "Uh...yeah. Sure am glad." Hmmmmmm.... What does that mean exactly? Who asks someone if they're glad their kids aren't ugly? Especially when the person you're talking to is a complete stranger? I mean, did she take a look at Channing and me and think..."Boy, those kids really dodged a bullet!" ?
Is it just me, or is that a strange question to ask anyone, especially since we don't even know each other?
We did once have a patient who said to Tristan (right in front of Channing) that he was too cute to belong to his parents. Hilarious, right?!
People seriously say the strangest things! I guess some people say what everyone else is thinking.

That is hilarious, Annie!! Maybe it is the same woman who I saw in WalMart one time who looked at Sam and then looked at me and told me "I'd tell you that he looked like you if you weren't so ugly!" ha! I still laugh about that!

I STILL cannot believe someone would say that. Seriously, what do you think is going through these people's minds??? It had to be the same person. There can't be that many loose-lipped people, right?

YOU are hilarious, angelgirl! Seriously, I think these people who say crazy things are drawn to me like a mouse to cheese. They seek me out. I must have some kind of sign on my forehead!
