Generics/Genetics- It's all Relative!!

Ok so here is my best rendition of a conversation Al had with his mom yesterday. Since I'm away from my pictures at the moment I thought I'd share b/c for some reason Alex and I think it was funny. Sorry Mary, hope you can enjoy the laugh too. It just sounded too cute not to post. It's like a glimps into the relationship b/w a son and his mom.

NOTE: This is paraphrased as I was not actually there for the conversation:

Alex: "Mom, I went to the doctor and my Cholestorol is a little high."
Mary, Al's Mom: "Oh well that's just Generic."
Alex: "Huh, you mean Genetic?"
Mary: "Yeah, that's what I said, Generic."
Alex: "Mom, the word is Genetic! Generic is what Michele buys at the Grocery store."
Mary: "Gener, Gene, oh whatever. You can eat oatmeal. It will lower your cholestorol. It's easy, you just mix it and heat it in the microwave."
Alex: "Oh ok, I guess I'll just do that and heat it up in my microwave I have in my car." (Note this was sarcasm and Alex travels everyday, all day in his company car.)
Mary: "YOU HAVE A MICROWAVE IN YOUR CAR!?!"
Alex: "No Mom. I was just joking."

I promise this was a real conversation and was not adapted from a script of some TV comdey or anything like that. My mother-in-law is an intelligent and loving woman. I just thought this was too adorable not to share. Hope I'm not in trouble now. If you see this post disappear then you'll know.
