Birthday dinner: we had a gay ol' time

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor dark of night -- nor Chicago Bears games -- can stop the Planet family from our birthday-dinner rounds.

In keeping with Wonderhubby's wishes, we dined at a local sports bar, with the Bears-Falcons game in the foreground background.

After all, we did have to see if Jay Cutler (that ratfink) was going to give me heartburn and take our fantasy football team down in flames. Not to mention the birthday boy is a DIEHARD Bears fan.

So with the Bears in front of us -- and the Dodgers sucking it behind us -- we dined and celebrated in our usual fashion.

Drama King: What, Drummer, so were you going to hit a cop car?

*Don't ask. I don't know where this came from ...*

Drummer Man: No, I was the one who was hit by a cop car.

*True story. Only my kid*

Drummer Man: I was in the left-turn lane and the cop was next to me and turned right into me from the center lane.

Drama King: What was he supposed to do?

Drummer Man: I thought he was going to go straight.

Drama King: We don't do that.

Evil Mother: We don't do what?

Drama King: Go straight. We go gaily forward.

Evil Mother: Oy.

Drummer Man: Do you play Rock Band?

Drama King: Yeah, my finest hour was playing guitar and singing at the same time. I don't have a mike stand so I had to hold the mike between my legs.

*dramatic pause*

Drama King: Just deal with THAT visual ...

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

Drama King: *looking around the table* Wow, you really DO have a problem with having grandchildren.

Z-man: Yeah, Drummer, it's all on you.

The Roo-girl: And me!!! I like boys!!

Drama King: Me too!!!!

Evil Mother: *smacking him on the shoulder* Shush.

Drummer Man: So, you want grandchildren, Mom?

Evil Mother: Of course. I'm depending on you.

Drummer Man: *grinning* Well, ya know ...

Evil Mother: Are you trying to tell ...

Fabulous Girlfriend: NO!!!!!!!!!

Evil Mother: Bwahahahahahahahahhahahahaaa!!!

Siobhan said...

Love it. The first one made me laugh out loud! So what's going on with his car then?

Suzanne said...

I guess J bear is mum on the subject?

That police car story sounds like fantastic blog fodder!

When is the next birthday, anyway? Have to mark the calendar, you know. :)

We always said, "never straight, always a head." Have I said too much?

Let me see - so far, your family is like "Hell's Kitchen", "Big Bang Theory", "Queer Eye For The Straight Guy", "How I Met Your Mother" and "Friday Night Lights" all rolled into one.

You just made my day.

Thank you for that.

Indigo said...

I absolutely love being a fly on the wall at these dinners. (Hugs)Indigo

Roger said...

So was it Drummer Man's fault that the police officer ran into him? Did I miss this story somewhere while I was sick?

Drama King definitely paints a visual picture, but I still don't see how he can play that guitar like that. :)

When's the next birthday party? :)

karisma said...

LOL! Your family has to be the only one I know that is cheekier than mine! Gotta love em!

Jaina said...

Oh dear, I love the birthday dinner posts, they're my favorites!

Pamela said...

Maybe we should start a pool to see where your 1st one shows up. (grandchild, I mean)

Karen said...

I envision your family sitting around thinking, "a birthday is coming up soon. What should be talk about so that mom can blog..."
