T and the Girls

My second son met a girl at a music camp last week. He was a counselor. I'll call her Karen.

Karen is a musician at Bones' school. He says she's great and T, I think, thinks she's pretty great too. I'm finding that T is starting to hang out with a lot of people at Bones' Art school, but interestingly enough, not because of Bones.

So Karen and T are going to the beach tomorrow.


My fair skinned blue eyed boy who has never really loved the beach (he'd rather go boating or fishing) is meeting up with a girl at the beach.

A group of them are going and Karen is bringing one of her friends, who I will call, Susan.

So we're at dinner tonight and Bones said, "So what did Karen say Susan is like?"

T replied, "Well, I hear she's tough. She's kind of judgmental and she really hates sarcasm..."

And before he could finish the sentence, all four of us said at the same time, "Uh oh, she is going to HATE YOU."

It was so dang funny. Susan would hate our family. At dinner we can be the worst and we all laugh hysterically.

Mo says we invented sarcasm. It's bad. After dinner tonight, Ringo who is still home from college, said, "Man, I missed this." Heh

Susan may dislike you, but our family would love you! The one-liners are the best. Fortunately our son-in-law's family is similar in that way, so when we get together it is a lot of fun. :)

Are you implying that your father is Elisson and that you are the Mistress of Sarcasm?

I don't think so.


Then too there are times in meetings when people ask whether I am pulling their leg when I tell people that stupid stuff is a Great Idea.

I was on a telecon I had to run for the first time, today. The guys are dead, I mean DEAD on the line. It's me running through it all and I get pretty much nothing, which tells me they are probably playing with their phones or something.

So we got a new guy today and I said, "Hey, welcome to this lively bunch..."

I laughed. Nobody said anything, which *I* thought was perfect.

After about five minutes of me talking and cajoling, he finally pipes in and says, "I thought you said this was a lively bunch..." He was serious. I had to say, "umm... I was being sarcastic."

BTW, Ellison is old enough to be a big bro. :)

My family is fluent in sarcasm. We have a great time when we get together. It is non-stop picking and laughing. I lot of people just don't "get us".

At teacher's college they made a big huge deal about how sarcasm was NEVER appropriate and no teacher should EVER use sarcasm, and blah, blah, blah. I use it all the time and the kids eat it up. You do have to be careful though because anyone not used to it sometimes takes it seriously.
