I have something that often brings laughter from a lot of people - in fact we've laughed about it ourselves...
When I tell people that my boyfriend and I have known each other our whole lives, they assume we grew up on the same street, went to the same school, had the same friends, etc. It's when I tell them HOW we know each other that we get a lot of funny looks.
Turns out that my much older brother married John's (my boyfriend) aunt when I was quite young. This led to my oldest sister meeting my brother's wife's brother and eventually marrying him. Then came another of my sisters, falling in love with another brother of my brother's wife...keeping up with all this so far??
Thus all their kids are considered "double-first cousins"...which makes them my nieces and nephews - but also makes them John's cousins. Thus if he and I ever marry, he would be not only their cousin, but their uncle as well!!
Now I know all of this sounds quite crazy, but let me assure you that John and I are not one bit related. One night when he and I were laughing about it, he told me "Well, at least we're not related...I don't think...well, if we ARE, they better not tell us!!" LOL!!
I was telling him something just the other day about one of my niece's, and when he asked which one, I replied "Teresa...you know, the only one who's NOT related to you!" Haha...
