Used the line for a unusal request
« on: October 25, 2007, 11:37:58 AM »
My aunt is visiting from a tropical climate and did not come prepared with a jacket or coat.  I offered one of mine to her to use while she was visting.  She thanked me and then asked, "If she could borrow DF to snuggle with too."  I guess I looked at her with such disbelief that she wanted to qualify her answer.  She said that it never hurts to ask.  I so hope it was joke but in the moment it sure didn't seem like it.

So I calmly looked at her and replied, "No, I'm afraid that won't be possible."

I laugh now but in the moment I was a little creeped out.  DF is still a lot creeped out.

Well, she was either making a joke that didn't come off....

Or yeah. VERY creepy.
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

I really do hope she was trying to make a joke that didn't come off well!

That comment would have made me feel weird too!

I would have said:

"He's mine and you can't have him!"
