...this morning and the barber, who has been cutting my hair for decades, asked me an odd question. He asked, "your sister is married, isn't she?"
I gave him my Mr. Spock raised eyebrow and said, "Yeah, she is and...?"
"Are you okay with him being married to your sister?", he asked. I told him "Of course! You've met him and he is a good guy."
He chuckled and said that my sister's husband was my brother-in-law, with the operational word being "brother". He went on, "so that means in your coonass family it is okay that your brother is married to your sister!
I chuckled and let it drop until he got done.
As I was heading towards the door, I said, "Yeah, I guess it is pretty bad having my brother being married to my sister, but you're married too, so your wife's mother is your mother-in-law, with the operational word being 'mother', right?
I had to dodge the scissors he threw at me and never did get to say, "Say 'hi' to your sister for me when you get home tonight, okay?"
