Insult or Compliment?

Sometimes my Mom has trouble conveying the true meaning of her words. Just last month as we were crossing the border into Canada she pulled out our passports and exclaimed, “Nobody has ever taken a good driver’s license or passport picture. And just look at yours, Laura.”

I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, my dear, sweet mother was telling my wife what a bad photo she’d had taken. This was hilarious. The highlight of the trip!

“Oh wait, that’s not what I meant,” said Mom. “I meant that nobody but Laura has a good picture.”

    I thought it was more funny before you corrected yourself. But you’re right, she is a looker!
