Mistaken identity

I have forgotten to include this story until now. It came up again this past weekend!

In January, my mom's side of the family went to an Italian restaurant to celebrate my cousins' birthdays. My parents piled seven of us in their minivan up to the restaurant. While in the car, we somehow got onto the topic of eating breakfast or rushing in the morning or something. My aunt Kim and I had the following exchange:

Kim: Walt [her husband] drinks his coffee in the shower.

What I heard: Walt's dad has his coffee in the shower.

Me: How do you know that?

Kim: Because I've seen him!

Me (very confused now): You've seen him? How have you seen him?

Kim (now also confused): Because I've had to do something in the bathroom when he's in the shower and I go in there.

Me: You'll use the bathroom when Walt's dad is in the shower?

Kim: WHAT?!!!!

Laughter ensues.

This weekend, we went to watch Kim's daughter, my cousin Kaysie, play soccer in Indy. Kaysie is on a U-17 select team. Imagine mine and Hal's surprise when we went to dinner with the team and the parents, and the server asked us WHICH GIRL WAS OUR DAUGHTER so she could get our order. I look pretty good for having a baby at NINE, don't you think?!

Haha, I used to do Big Brother Big Sister (in Bloomington!) and I once took her bowling at the student union and someone asked me how old my daughter was. At the time, I was 21 and she was 9. Go figure.

Also, I tagged you in a meme if you're interested. Check out my blog for details! :)
