Thanksgiving 2015: Family & Politics. Share you stories.

Recommended Posts

All my cousins were too busy on their cell phones.  Very important stuff I imagine.  

 

ha.

 

We had family over for dinner, I cooked as usual.

 

Our niece and her boyfriend were there but there was nothing that would get them to look up from their stupid phones.  And they're about 26 years old.

Here's how my after-dinner conversation went with my father in law.

Lawrence: So... the wife and I are thinking about flying up to see you guys in February.

FIL: That would be great but good luck being able to afford the tickets. Everything's been screwed up since the Arabs took over.

Lawrence: Did they buy one of the airlines or something?

FIL: No. 9/11

Lawrence: (blank stare)

a classic

I like that he refers to his better half as "the wife" to her own father 

Maybe dear old dad likes to be called the colonel or maybe something even more formal like the maestro.

Being serious, I had already bought my father in law a copy of Triggered before he arrived.  He didn't get my Chapter 11 joke. He started reading it and it must be like 10,000 milligram Viagra  and blood rushed from his brain to places it hasn't been in 30 years, he stood up and fell flat on his face again.  Down Goes Dave.  It was great!

Awesome!  I’m sure my dad has also purchased this book and has it dog eared and highlighted with post it notes.

Don Jr is apparently Thomas Paine for MAGAs.

There isn't a single likable Trump

The whole family is pretty mid-thirteenth century, they are all a plague. I would 23 and me the whole lot of them.  Barron, creepy looking kid, you can tell he has moved on from smashing pollywogs with a rock to small animal torture.  I see a young Patrick Bateman on the rise there.

Yeah, it's too early to tell

Small sample size. It's still April 25 for Barron.
