This is a question Take my Mother-in-law...

There's a reason there are so many bad jokes about mothers-in-law. You don't choose them, they just come along as emotional baggage with your object of affection. I'm lucky, my m-i-l is lovely*, but don't let that put you off telling us how mad your in-laws really are.

*No, really

the MIL
Not mine, but actually my mum's.
At her funeral, the story about "Betty" was to become to be known all through her later years as "Millie" to everyone she knew. Apparently her sons and daughters-in-law had all been calling her "the MIL" up until the time we small grandkids were born, so we started calling her "Mil" or "Millie" as well, and the name seemed to stick. We actually grew up thinking her name was "Millie" and soon the whole family and all her friends and so on knew her as that. Of course later on we learned that wasn't her real name, but the truth of where the name came from was only to be explained after she was dead - got a laugh at the funeral, at least...
