Like father like son

I'm referring to Brad and his dad for now. Although, who knows... it may also apply to Kilian and Brad in the future. If Kilian chooses to get married one day, I'll be ready to offer my apologies to his future wife.

At a church function last weekend Brad introduced me to someone like this:


Friend: Hey Brad.

Brad: Hi. How are you? Oh - I guess you haven't met. This is my first wife, Lael.

Friend: (half-smile and a confused look while shaking my hand)

Me: (rolling my eyes, shaking my head and hoping this friend knows Brad's sense of humor enough to find this funny...) Nice to meet you.


I have seen my father-in-law do this to my mother-in-law (his first and only wife...of 40 years) in person, and I've heard this was not an isolated event. I knew what I was getting into when I married this jokester - and I know there is a lot more to come. That is ok with me, though.

I guess the "my first wife" joke is better than the "my baby-mama" joke he could be using!

*We have been married 10 1/2 years, a first marriage for both of us in case anyone does not know.

Funny, my dad would do this too. But he started doing it in Saudi Arabia where a man can have up to 4 wives!
