So, I'm in the kitchen fixing The Queen her morning/mid afternoon porridge when the mother in law comes in to make coffee. As housemates go, the MIL is about as easy going as they come. Slightly insane but not overbearingly so.
Anyway, she mentioned that she was developing one of my headaches (I get the occasional skull crusher). Here is how the conversation developed from there:
MIL: I just want one cup of coffee because I'm getting one of your headaches.
Me: Well, your aspirin is right there (while pointing at the aspirin bottle on the kitchen counter next to the sink).
MIL: Did you say drink some beer?
Me: [blink, blink] What?
I have absolutely no idea how her brain translated "aspirin" to "beer", but it did. Then again, my MIL is notorious for "hearing" something totally off subject because her brain works somewhat off of normal.
