Today my mother was talking to my cousin about diet and exercise when she mentioned to her that my brother recently bought my sister-in-law a new eucalyptus machine.
"What kind of machine??" my cousin said.
"A eucalyptus machine. You know, the kind that you walk on, like a treadmill."
"Oh, so you mean she has a big plant in her room that she hops on in the morning?"
"What??" my mother said, clearly confused.
"It's an elliptical machine, Aunt Toni, not eucalyptus." she said, laughing. "I don't know who to call first about this, Salena or my mother." knowing that once I heard the story, I'd be blogging it immediately.
And of course, she was right.
