We Are Not Rednecks!

On Friday, my daughter and her friends were hanging out upstairs at the computer. They were creating PowerPoints about random stuff. Yes, this is our idea of fun.

I hear my daughter talking to her friends. She is saying, "You can't marry your first cousin, but you CAN marry your second cousin." 

What?!? Who the heck told her that?!?

I yell up the stairs. "Ky, please stop telling your friends they can marry their family. We are from Iowa not the backwoods!"

Oh my goodness...I swear I did not tell her it was ok to marry your cousins! Not even if they are your second cousin!

BTW...State name was omitted to avoid controversy about where it may be acceptable to marry your second cousin :)
