I think I did it
« on: April 25, 2013, 03:59:19 PM »
It wasn't quite full-blown bean-dipping, but I think it worked.

I went to Nearby Nice Town with DF, FIL e MIL: DF and FIL had an errand to run there, so we decided to make a bit of holiday out of it.
MIL and I started out talking about DF and my childhood, which got us talking about how things (you know, strollers, beds, etc.) have changed for kids today. Then, suddenly...

MIL: When you and DF have kids, you must buy a high stroller, so it will be more comfortable for me to push it when I watch the baby.

Me: Oh, when the time comes we'll probably drive the shop assistant crazy* looking at all the strollers, but we'll definitely see what works best.


*I don't actually plan to be That Kind of Costumer, though knowing us, we will be thorough.
We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.

It wasn't a direct, obvious bean-dip, just a small hint of it because you redirected the conversation away from the direction she was taking it.  Good job!
The problem with choosing the lesser of two evils is that you're still choosing evil.

A fine example of a subtle beandip!

So very smooth that it took me a moment to figure out what you'd done!   ;D
