and asks me, with a straight face, "Mom, hypothetically, if I brought home a Frankenstein monster, would you let him live here?" Silence....husband and I look at each other trying to figure out what that all means. Finally, I said "why?" He just wondered what I would do or say. Really, I'm just trying to get my head around the comment. Is difficult child asking for something behind his question? I have no idea. I draw the line at Frankenstein monsters but anyone else is a possibility. Why "hypothetically"? LOL. husband and I cracked up. difficult child still has the ability to leave me speechless.
