So my family is extremely political. We are almost all very liberal (even the relatives in their 80s).
So was watching a tv show (North and South) when my phone dinged. Text message. One of my aunts asking if I was home.
Me: yep watching a show
Aunt: So, what show?
Me: BBC version of North and South. NOT the one about the US.
Aunt: Is it any good?
Me: it’s lovely! (Goes on to give details)
Aunt: Who is in it?
Me: Richard Armitage, who is just gorgeous in it.
Aunt: …….. Don’t you think he is a little old for you?
Me: Uhm. No. We are very close in age. (I’m 44)
Aunt: He’s older than me or your mother!! He’s a lot older than either of us. Besides he is a Republican!! (They are mid60s)
Me: (dawning realization….trying NOT to laugh) No no no. You are thinking the politician. I am talking the British actor.
Aunt: Oh! My! He is quite the pretty man isn’t he?
