For christmas one year my FMIL gave my FI and I a large (like foot long) plastic ear, play doh, and sausage. I must of had a confused look on my face because when I held up the ear she said "So you know I'm always listening." I think she meant it in a caring way, but to me it was creepy.
We we got engaged my FI grandmother threw us an engagement party. That side of his family is Chinese and into their culture. The party was lovely and she had decorated in our wedding colors. In the center of the table was a bird cage (a decorative one) with 3 oragami birds in it. I HATE birds but didn't really think much into it because I thought it was a decoration. His grandmother asked if I liked it and I told her it was really nice. She said she was glad because Aunt So-and-so had made it for us as a gift. A cousin then told us that it is called a fertility cage and each bird represents how many kids you'll have. I was soooo terrified as soon as we left I put in in the trunk of my car and forgot about it. A few weeks later we were out with grandma and were loading things into the trunk and she noticed it. FI and I told her about it and how we want kids but not now. She said "Well clearly I'm not fertile so you can store it at my place until your ready." I didn't know if I should laugh or take her up on it. Ever since then it has become a joke between our friends that we're going to hide it in their closet or under their bed so they get pregnant. The best part is, this happened in October and the birds are still riding around in my trunk. I giggle every time I open my trunk!
