Birthday dinner: counting crazies

So ... I've been holding out on you.

Because J-bear's birthday was last month. She turned 19 with very little fanfare because she wanted to wait.

She wanted her birthday dinner after Z-man came home.

And therefore we waited with her -- until this past weekend, when we could hold out no longer for ...

*insert trumpet fanfare here*


Evil Mother: *something something I can't remember until we got to ...* ... married for *pause* six years.

Drama King: Bwahahahahaha. I liked how you had to pause there. What, were you counting on your fingers?

Z-man: Good thing it was only six. What will you do when you get past 10?

Evil Mother: HA! I'll count on my toes. I can count to 20.

Drama King: I can count to 21 ...

Evil Mother: *eyeroll*

Z-man: You could count to 22.

J-bear: How do you do THAT?

Evil Mother: *eyeroll times two*

Drama King: *patting Rocky on the leg* I can count to 22.

Evil Mother: Ayeeeeeeeiiiiiieeeeeeee!!!!!!

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

Z-man: Have you ever watched "Man Vs. Wild"?

Evil Mother: That guy is CRAZY.

Z-man: Yeah, but he did this thing where he went into icy water NAKED and then was doing jumping jacks.

*Before we continue, let me just say that I actually searched for this episode and couldn't find it. The rest of the conversation, however, stands on its own*

Evil Mother: Lalalalalala ... I can't hear you! You know, I was totally traumatized when I was in college. I went to this erotic film festival ...

Drama King: Wait. Wait. Wait! An erotic film festival? Do I want to hear about this????

The Roo-girl: Lalalalalalala ... I can't hear you!!!!

Evil Mother: Yeah, yeah, whatever. It was in COLLEGE. Anyway, the only thing I remember about it was a scene with a naked man doing jumping jacks. I have never been the same.

Z-man: I don't think after being in the ice water, the Survivor Man's ... uh ...

Evil Mother: Lalalalalala ... I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!!!

It never gets any better.

I hope you realize that your reading public goes bananas when we see "Birthday" in the feed reader.

Happy Belated Birthday, J Bear!

Never a nice quiet dinner at your place.

Happy Birthday to J-bear!

I confess, I smile large whenever I see a post titled, "Birthday dinner" because I know fun follows.

Sorry they're so rough on your delicate sensibilities.

What most excellent timing on my part - a birthday dinner post when I get back from the bog of eternal addiction that is facebook.

I saw that episode and lets just say I'm still scarred. At least they blocked part of him out but it still didn't help.

Y'all need to spend more time together as a group. For me. I know that's selfish, but these are the best sorts of posts!

Karen said...

You know, it's conversations like these that leave me speechless. How do you follow that?

Jaina said...

Lol. I still think your family should have their own sitcom. The best episodes will be the birthday dinners ;) Haha. Love it. :)
