We are in the middle of preparing a family meal when my MIL, out of the blue, leans over and whispers, 'I don't like the smell of sperm.'
Extremely confused and sure I haven't heard her correctly I say, 'Wha??'
'SPERM!' she whispers louder.
i just shook my head and took in the uncomfortable silence that followed.

Perhaps you smell of sperm?

I meant to say in my original post that NO I DID NOT SMELL OF SPERM!!!!

Is she going senile - perhaps, likely!!

She DOES have an accent, maybe she did say spam?!

I dunno, all I can say is I can't look at my FIL without wondering about his funky spunk.

Oh FFFSSSSS, I just spat my tea all over monitor!!
Thanks OP- that gave me a much needed LMAO/PMSL!!!!

Have you in a conversation with someone else in the past mentioned liking the smell of it, where your MIL could have overheard? Something like that?

madhousewife Mon 20-Jun-11 20:20:34

No, no, I had never talked to MIL about sperm or to anyone.
Maybe superspecs nailed it - granny got some before tea.

I think it's official that I have the strangest MIL! I thought this thread might start some other MIL stories that would make this one seem ok. shit.

Sorry OP, nothing is gonna make this right grin

My MIL trims her pubes with FIL's hair clippers and he don't even know.


jubilee10 Mon 20-Jun-11 20:24:29

Neither do I!

I would have talked to her about it, I'm always interested to know what the older generation really think and feel about sex stuff. I have gathered from a recent conversation that I was right in my assumption that I am indeed a very lucky woman to be born into my generation.

was rhianna's SandM on the radio???? (sex in the air, i like the smell of it)

Jonnyfan Mon 20-Jun-11 20:39:42

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Priceless! I would be speechless with horror.

DurhamDurham Mon 20-Jun-11 20:40:31

Well on the bright side (after desperately trying to think of one for you) it would have been more awkward/weird if your FIL had said it grin

madhousewife Mon 20-Jun-11 20:41:27

loolah - how do YOU know she trims with FIL's clippers? heehee!
Good god LDN - I did NOT want that conversation to continue any further....
StNonsense - do you mean sex in the air, i DON"T like the smell??? MIL is a clean freak...
