Mothers-In-Law



by Seattle Jon (bio)

Mothers-in-law are created when you get married, so when I married Charlie my mother-in-law came into existence. At least for me she did. Anyway, this created a dilemma. Does my mother-in-law deserve the same attention on Mother's Day that I give to my real mother?

For many years I thought no. Then, a few years ago, I heard that you can rearrange the letters in "mother-in-law" to read "woman hitler." I remember thinking, "Hey, that's not fair. Mother-in-laws might be evil but they don't deserve to be compared to him!" From then on - in addition to mentioning the anagram to my mother-in-law as often as possible - I stopped thinking no and started thinking yes! Mother-in-laws deserve attention, too.

So, this post is for Nana, my mother-in-law, my woman hitler. I love you. Image via contraband.se
