I was driving with my son and his girlfriend ... a beautiful day and we were all joking around. They're both 25 and filled with the possible, including a view that the world can change (which it can).
She: "Can you bake some brownies tonight?"
She: "I love your brownies."
Son: "I know... you just think that's all I'm good for." <grin>
Me: "Naw. She just likes you barefoot and in the kitchen. hahaha"
Silence from them...
Me: "You know... barefoot... in the kitchen... I'm being funny..."
Son: "I don't think we know the joke, Mom."
Me: "Uh, it's an expression that your feminist mom was playing with... You know... It used to be ok to say women should be barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen."
She: "Who says that???"
Me: "You've never heard it?"
Son: "Obviously not."
She: "Never. And if I did I would speak up about it. That's just not right."
Me: "Well, I'm sure some of your friends have."
Sounds of them busy on social media
Me: "You just made my day."
