At dinner with all of my dad's side of the family, minus my dad...
Uncle Bob doing something to annoy me...
Me: Do you do these things to make up for dad not being here?
Uncle Bob: Yes, of course. What else am I supposed to do?
Discussing Uncle Duane's... knack of driving, shall we say...
Uncle Bob: I looked in the rearview mirror and noticed your (Don, aunt's father) eyes WIDE open staring straight ahead.
Everyone: busting out laughing [b/c that's how we all feel in the car with Uncle Duane]
Don: I had looked down and he was going 95 miles an hour!!
Uncle Duane: we got on the highway and I realized that you [Uncle Bob] were already so far ahead. I had to catch up! I think Don and I were chatting about something...
Yes, that is usually what is happening. Uncle Duane is the ultimate chatter...
Giving Gramps a hug...
Gramps: Hello, dear! How's the nursing going?
Me: Oh, it's fine.
Gramps: Are people still sick?! *slight chuckle*
Aaaaalways... this is a standard line and I am NEVER ready for it! :)
Enjoying a nice lunch...
Grammy: have you met anyone yet?
Me: Oh, like a boy? No, not yet.
Aunt Marie: hey! It's pretty good it took her this long to ask you!
A few minutes later a group of college-age boys walk by...
Grammy (in a louder than normal voice): Yoo-who! Yes, this is my wonderful granddaughter! Uh, yes... look at her!
Me: Grammy! Wha? Why?
Grammy: Well, they should be looking at you. You are just so sweet.
Me: *shakes head*
Grammy: that boy you brought to dinner that one time... he was just so nice.
Me: yes, he is married now and has a kid.
These may not be all that funny to you... but they are to me and I just had to document some of them! I have another day spent with these people that I love so much... and I'm sure there will be more funny things said! :)
Have a wonderful FIRST DAY OF SPRING! It's exciting! Although, I realize that it doesn't make much of a difference to me here in Florida, but I am excited for all of you still in cold, snowy states. :)
