Going home for the weekend is always an interesting experience. Everyone thinks their own family is a little crazy, and I’m no exception. To illustrate, here are a few things that were said in my house this weekend.


“On a scale of one to America, how free are you this weekend?”

“I’ve told you like 4 times to put your picture of the archbishop away.”

“I’m sort of obsessed with Alaskan real estate.” (we live in Connecticut)

“Should we invite Doug to Doug’s birthday dinner?”

“Do you have baby chicken disease?”

“That star is dead and so are your dreams.”


…Welcome to the family.
