One of our relatives has been visiting this week. She has been living in Spain, and is in the States for a two-month visit. A few of the other relatives were asking her what brought her here for the summer. Every time, the relative patiently answered that she was here to “visit family and to renew my visa”.
Last night, at dinner, my mother-in-law said, “I know she needs to stay a little while because she still needs to – what is it, again?”
Our 9-year-old, Dimples, who had already heard the question asked and answered several times, helpfully supplied the answer, “Renew her credit card.”
I think she’s seen one too many Olympic commercials.
