Can't live with 'em, can't take 'em out and shoot 'em

Oh lordy ... my boys.

I have no words.

*edited to add: Ok I just reread this post, and I think I should stop blaming my boys. My participation in this is NOT pristine!!!*

Saturday night we went out to dinner to celebrate J-bear's birthday. Z-man is home from college for the summer, and I should know what the combination of Z and the Drama King would bring.

Drummer was missing. He and the lovely girlfriend were going to a concert. That, of course, made him the prime target of brotherly -- uh -- love. Rocky was also MIA, having left town for a family wedding.

However, we had picked up a stray for dinner. One of J-bear's girlfriends from work. Poor, poor dear. She had no idea what she was getting into.

Evil Mother: It's too bad Drummer Man isn't going to be here.

Z-man: Oh, he's not?

Evil Mother: No.

*instant commencement of imitations (not the sincerest form of flattery in this case) of D Man's not-so-stellar moments*

Evil Mother: Poor J-friend. You didn't know what you were getting into, did you? You guys are really MEAN! Drummer Man is the perfect straight man.

Drama King: So ... that makes me the GAY MAN ... hello?????

*unison bwahahahaha'ing*

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Drama King: I don't remember what side dish I wanted.

Evil Mother: *very very very quietly* Corn?

Drama King: Oh, yeah. That's right. Co-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-orn ... Bring LOTS of butter, please!

Evil Mother: When is Rocky coming home again???

Even though I am way too old to be your daughter and I have a mother I really like, would you adopt me please?

I know it's been said before, but it seems so appropo - You and yours put the 'fun' in dysfunctional.

I can't respond because I'm laughing too hard to type. I've decided I can't go out to dinner with you guys after all, because I would be spraying my beverage all around the table at regular intervals, which really isn't a good party game, despite what the frat boys think.

I used to love corn. *Sigh* But not it's tainted.

Crazed Mom said...

Sounds like dinners in my family. I grew up with 3 nasty mean brother and a very sarcastic mother. I survived.

LOL. Dinnertime is a hoot at your place. I simply adore these posts.

I REALLY need to eat a dinner with y'all. Not that I would manage to do much eating, but the laughing would totally be worth it.

karisma said...

I don't get it! What is all the fuss about? Sounds like a normal dinner to me! Actually it sounds quite sedate, you should hear my lot when they get going! And I am not just referring to the kids, the grownups are far worse!

Not the corn!!!! LOL I thought 'we' had fun around the supper table, but we just don't even compare to the fun at your place LOL
