do any of you remember this post from back in january? probably not. why would you remember one of my posts from six months ago? anyway, if you don't feel like clicking on that link, basically, the story is as i was taking my photos for that post, my mailman drove up, parked right in front of my house, and yelled out the open window of his postal truck, "SMILE, NOW"! and then proceeded to sit there and watch me while i took all of my outfit shots. awkward! cut to this past saturday...my husband was outside doing yard work while mimi and i were inside taking naps. as he was working, that very same mailman walked up to him and started up a conversation. during this conversation he apologized to jim, my husband, for yelling at his daughter a few months ago while she was outside taking photos. jim, at this point, became very confused...the mailman yelled at mimi while she was outside taking pictures? what? after a bit more explaining, jim realized that the mailman thought that i was jim's daughter. me. his wife. at this point, jim became even more confused. he is only 3 1/2 years older than me and could, in no way, be my dad. so he asks the mailman, "how old do you think she is?" to which the mailman replied, "i don't know. early twenties?" so the mailman thought that my 36-year-old husband had a daughter in her early twenties. seriously. jim then told the mailman that i was not, in fact, his daughter but his wife. and the mailman apparently felt very sheepish and sort of apologized and slowly backed away. and, of course, when jim told me the story, i was conflicted. was i mad at the mailman for offending my husband by insinuating that he was old enough to have fathered me? of course! but i also kind of wanted to hug him and thank him for thinking that i was in my early twenties! crazy mailman...
happy friday! i hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
