I have a really weird extended family. I mean that in the nicest way possible, but they are kooks. We had a family Christmas party this afternoon that ended with a bottle of Irish whiskey being passed around the circle with everyone taking a hit~especially my 81-year-old Grandma and her sister. So I got thinking in the season of much family togetherness that I really do like them and the biggest reason why is they are a hoot. Exhibits A-E
**My Grandma makes us sing the "12 Days of Christmas" every year and last year we tried to do it "gay"
**My dad and my uncle once went sledding down a hill. With no coats. Into a creek.
**When Tim married into my family, he didn't know quite what to think. His family is very nice and my family yells things like "GET OFF ME YOU FAT OAF!"
**We once had a "meeting" to move the official beginning of Happy Hour up to 10am so one could have beer on one's Post Toasties.
**My Uncle Jim does a mean rendition of "Junior Birdman"
What kinds of fun stories come from your family? Do you do weird things? Are we the only ones who spend hours of drunken fun?
