Icky Fished that Need Not be Fried

We had a fish fry tonight. My aunt and uncle joined us, and the entire family is now in town, my brother and my sister and her husband. Twelve of us total this evening.

And so we sat at our nice sweet family gathering and as dinner was wrapping up, the following enlightening, yet completely awful conversation occurred, to the best of my recollection.

Morrigan (to the boys): Well you can go a few days without food.

Mr. T: Yes, I know.

Mo: But not so long without water. Maybe only a few days.

Bones: 97 hours.

Me: Really? How do you know that? (Never underestimate the trivia one’s offspring can learn from Discovery Channel or Animal Planet.)

Bones: No… I guessed.

Morrigan, looking at Bones, who loves the Movie Dodgeball: Well, you could always drink your own urine.

Mr. T: Ick. No. It’s spicy.

Morrigan: *blink*

Me: *blink*

Morrigan: I don’t want to know…

Mr. T: Well I’ve never drank pee, but Bones has.

Morrigan: I really don’t want to know…

Bones, looking at Mr. T.: Yeah, but that wasn’t on purpose, that’s because you peed on my head!

Me: What?!

Morrigan: I really really don’t want to know…

Me: WHEN was this?!

Bones: Last year.

Mr. T: NOOOO. It was 3 or 4 years ago…

Gah. And it went from there. It was horrible. I’ve been damaged… perhaps more so as my uncle, one of the most straight laced clean cut, anal retentive clean clean clean, engineers I’ve ever met in my life, quietly listened to this completely awful conversation.



Makes me want to vomit…

Pee makes you want to vomit? You either don't like spicy, or your pee beverage was made by a lesser manufacturer.


And "No"... I haven't consumed the yellow treat.

That is one conversation I hope I n.e.v.e.r hear at my house.

By Gott, I guess I have! Not spicy, but not quite puke worthy. Then again, it was cold. Maybe that's the difference.

So where does pee rank on your boys' food rating scale? Or do they have a separate system for beverages? Just curious...

T1G- Ack!

Jerry- My Dad agrees with that statement!

VW- Well... it will happen. You walked in on your youngest about to give himself a swirly, so I'm telling you, it will happen!

Peggy- Gah! I'm not going to ask!
