As I said – they are senior citizens… so… They Have More Money Than I Do! Handing out money is not an option.
Prunes! Prunes might be the right gift/dish to bring to these stuffy old souls! It is a better solution than a good swift kick to the keister!
You’re singing to the choir.
If… and I want to emphasize the word IF!… relatives get mad at you for being the one to give the kids Loud and Obnoxious Holidays ( actually – happy memories). Remind them One Thing about Santa – Santa has only One List. Yes – the good kids get gifts. And the bad kids get coal (an assurance of a warm night). But they are all listed.
And a coupon to come back next week to continue your order!
Weather sites and Weather Guessers on TV and radio are just as accurate. Local weather (every predictor) said today was going to have flood warnings/watches due to the heavy amounts of rain. I am currently straining to see the screen due to the sun’s glare.
Unnerving. Unnerving is when they inform you that Fortune Telling is their Secondary Job! Their First Job is Wills and Trusts… and they are confused why you wanted your future read at all! ;)
Wait. Just… wait. Those grandkids will grow to be teens. Teens are notorious for striking out to become their own person. Sit back a simply smirk when your kids complain that their kids went out and (Gasp!) dined at Burger King! THEN throw some hotdogs and burgers on the grill! ;)
A vegan would be too repulsed. You killed a living creature, cooked it, and served it to them.
Vegetarians are just as annoying. But at least you (might) be able to serve cheese, butter, and ice cream to them!
As I suddenly wish everyone to give a listen to a song, “Vanilla” by Red Rum Club. :)
The Gluten Intolerant and the Vegie Crowds are being held back.
Seriously, trying to bring something to a party is a nightmare! I have an event coming up with a bunch of senior citizens. You might know the problems – diabetic (so no sugar or other starch that can turn into sugar), no meat, no milk products, no alcohol, no wheat/gluten, and no specific/obvious holiday indication so as not to insult Anyone. I have no idea what I am going to bring!
