Well I do have a bad habit of sticking my foot in my mouth, but I didn't do it this time, she just misunderstood the question. Last year at my wife's class reunion I was talking to a guy about the "cottages" we were staying at; I said "I sure am glad we didn't stay at the 'cabins', they freaking suck big time, they haven't been updated since the 70's!" (Probably not true, 80's for sure) He said, "Yeah, uh, I live in those cabins". "Oh" was all I could say...then back my way out of the conversation.
But this time, for sure, I just didn't make myself clear. I'm sure that is her boyfriend and I was just going to tell her that he could be my brother. He probably looks more like me than my own brother does.
