My Loving, Supportive Husband

Scene: driving home from Salem, Massachusetts. We had just taken a tour of The House of the Seven Gables.

Me (thinking over the iron teakettle we'd just seen that weighed 25 lbs. empty): I'd have made a really sucky Colonial woman, what with my bad back and all.

Daddy Shortbread: True.

Me (musing): Of course, I'd probably have died in childbirth, so there wouldn't have been too many years of kettle-lifting for me anyway.

Daddy Shortbread: Oh, hon. They'd have burned you at the stake LONG before you'd made it to childbirth.

That made me giggle. I'd be witch on the next stake over.

LOL I'm sorry, that just cracked me right up! It kinda snuck up on me.

I just guffawed out load. Pete's looking at me oddly.

Daddy Shortbread tells it like it is, doesn't he? :)

What I meant was, she is far too independent of mind to have been tolerated in 1600s Salem.

Oooo, oooo, witchy woman...
