There's Daddy!

I had to go get new tires on the car today so I decided to head to Franklin. Jonathan's Uncle David and Aunt Diane have a tire store there and not only do we get a family discount, but I want to support their business.

Mary Elizabeth and I went into the lobby to wait while Uncle David was getting ready to put the tires on. Aunt Diane and I got to catch up and M.E. was showing how she could "walk" (holding my hands of course!) and smiling and waving. Another lady walked in and took a seat near us. She commented on how pretty M.E. was and I continued trying to keep her busy. It was about this time that the front door to the lobby opened. Not looking up, I heard the lady say, "There's Daddy!" I immediately realized she was talking to M.E. and looked up wondering how she would know what Jonathan would look like. I was shocked to see a tall, stocky black man. Evidently, when the door opened, Mary Elizabeth noticed him and did her traditional killer smile and wave. The lady took this to mean that she knew the man and assumed he was her dad. She assumed wrong. I immediately smiled (trying not to die laughing) and just said "nope!" She stumbled all over herself and couldn't get out of there fast enough.

That was definitely a first and although I'm sure it won't be the last, it sure was funny!

I would kinda be offended on one hand and laughing hystrically on the other.
