76. Mayflower Families
Edited on Wed Jan-30-08 02:53 PM by TalkingDog
I always love it when the posh ladies bring up their lineage. In my sweetest, most perky tone I always offer that the Spousal Unit's family name is listed on the Mayflower registry.

When they ask what family I say: "McG___, he was an indentured servant, they brought him over against his wishes." And try to look as vacuous as possible, while I wait for them to fumble around to find a way to change the subject.

It makes use of my best natural talents: an evil mind and a the total lack of that filter that other people seem to have that tells them not to say the first thing that pops into their heads.
