There’s an upside to having a super-chatty stepdad: he makes friends with EVERYBODY. Seriously. The mailman. The recycling guys. The dean of his department. And most importantly: restaurant owners.
We are favorites at the local sushi place, which means Rock Star status at their special VIP events. Tonight we took part in a special invitation only sake tasting event which capped off what is now known as a Rough Week for Our Family. The sake was to die for, the food was delicious and the laughter was constant. I really, truly enjoy the company of my family and only wish more people had that experience. Yes, they make me crazy sometimes, but they also make me laugh so hard I can’t breathe and THAT IS A SERIOUS COMPLIMENT.
Want some proof? Here is a sample of our conversations and drunken non sequiturs. Bet you can’t guess who said what.
“I like bold flavored meats.”
“I tend to download a lot of porn on my work computer.”
“Pour me a glass of sake and let’s watch something on the telly!”
“Let’s drink this and watch Godzilla!”
“Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto.”
“Isn’t this what Iron Chef drinks? If it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for me.”
“And we can use the bottles as Molotov cocktails if there’s a riot.”
Thank God I don’t have to be at work tomorrow. I can almost feel the hangover now.
I love them so much and want to squeeze their faces!
