We (my mother, sister-in-law, and I) made fourteen pies, fifty-some empanadas, a lemon thing, and
Not Martin Luther King. I mean, he's great, and I'm thankful for him, too, but my hunny is the one on the left.
He's on the right in this one. That other guy is Babe Ruth.
My great sister-in-law, Stephanie. Super fun to be around, and she's a teacher, too, so we bore everyone with our teacher talk.
All my bros and my parents. This is John & Stephanie's wedding, about a two years ago. We're lucky that, even though we tease each other mercilessly, (see below) we all actually like each other; something my hunny frequently reminds me of.
The other day, we celebrated my brother Ben's twenty second birthday by playing the game "Partini." This is a dangerous game. For one round, we had to write things about the person who chose the card and the person had to decide which was funniest and which was truest.
These were some of the statements written about me:
- I am a man who has funky teeth and I'm not as smart as I think. (from John. How sweet.)
- I am down to Earth (opinionated). (from Ben. This was truest.)
- I like tasty things (from Stephanie. This was funniest. Because it was true)
I am the boss of can I can I have I can do anything I try to do! (this was mom. She struggled a bit.)
- I was such a mean teacher to my students they told me to teach other teachers. (from Matt. Insightful.)
Other highlights: "I'm the smartest one around. When I'm not around family." and "I can't fix anything without breaking it first."
