feeling better about myself

Today, I ran into (well not literally) my Dad's aunt. She is in her 80's. Probably her upper 80's. Here's how it went:

Me: Hello!

various pleasantries exchanged

Me: Nate, this is Aunt X.

Insert here me giving Nate an explanation as to how he is related to Aunt X.

Aunt X: No, that's not right.

(yes it is, she was off by a few decades and relatives)

Aunt X: You got re-married. (I love it when people say re-married. Why not "Marriage: The Sequel!" or "Marriage: Part II!" ???)

Me: Yes.

Aunt X: You married that Pastor, didn't you?

Me: Yes.

Aunt X: You have to behave now.

Me: Yes.

Aunt X: Now how do I know you?


Since she was wrong about how we were related, maybe she was wrong about me having to behave.
