My mother in law spent last night with her daughter in Flower Mound and joined us tonight for a 4 night stay. It was a planned visit, so we should've been more ready ... but we were still unprepared for how to entertain her. We fared okay, though. My mother in law was treated to dinner at Cotton Patch and then Baskin Robbins. And then a night full of TV featuring I Dream of Jeannie, Mary Tyler Moore and Bewitched. Yes, we spared no expense on her entertainment.
She headed to bed at 9:00. I don't blame her.
Gotta mention, though, that we did have one funny conversation with her ... Elizabeth asked her what she liked to watch on TV. The answer was ... NCIS. We knew Rick would be excited because that's pert near his favorite show as well. NCIS was followed by The Flying Nun, she told us. Yeah, wide range of channels back in La Puente, California, I guess.
So, anyway, Rick joins us for the Mary Tyler Moore episode tonight and I proudly announce, "Guess what your mom's favorite show it??? NCIS!" Rick is stunned. He had heard that she only watched TBN back home.
"Really?" Rick asked.
"Really, what?" His mother asked.
"You watch NCIS?"
"I do! Wait, what do I watch?"
"NCIS?" Rick questioned.
"What's that? En Ciahess? Huh?" She asked.
"Do you watch NCIS?" Rick asked.
"No, I don't think so. But I do like The Flying Dog."
It's gonna be a long five days ...
