In-law, in line?

"I won't wear a toe-ring," she said, "and that's it!"
Her old mother-in-law's face fell. Unsubtly.
"Oh well, all right then, I'll wear it on my finger, if it's so important to you."
The old woman's face half-bloomed with the compromise. She could tell her relatives now that her new daughter-in-law was modern, yet traditional.

Hey! This is a really cool site!! Traveling is sooo cool especially if it’s to exotic locations..The coolest part is getting the best bargains on flights around the world... I found this really neat online fare consolidator called Cfares, that I use regularly.. check out the link at :

Tell all ur friends and colleagues in the US. Awesome prices if ur flying anywhere in the world..and it’s really useful, if ur flying from the US to China, South East Asia and Europe…hope this helps!! The Gold membership is free, and the deals are really good.. They have a platinum membership too, but I think that’s paid.. not really sure, but you get much better deals than the gold membership.
