We had a very pleasant surprise visit from my husband's great aunt earlier this week. She and her boyfriend were in town for a mini-vacation. Since we live near the beach, we often and happily have family & friends make us part of their vacation plans.
But since we had short notice, I let MiniMe know when I picked her up from school that day that I needed her help to get everything ready for our dinner guests. She asked who was coming to dinner.
"Beloved's Great Aunt is in town so she's stopping by for a visit with her boyfriend."
How old is his aunt?
"I don't know. A little older than your Mimi I guess."
And she has a boyfriend!?!?!
"Yes, why is that so weird."
If she's that old, how does she have a boyfriend?
"Her husband passed away a few years ago. So this gentleman is her boyfriend."
How old is he?
"I don't know, I haven't met him yet."
Is he 20 or is he older than that?
MiniMe! Of course he's older than that. She's not dating a 20-year-old. Why would you think that.
"Whew! Because boyfriends are guys in their 20s and 30s. I didn't know someone old could be called a boyfriend."
