One More Mommy

Thoughts of a mom and her husband, son, daughter, pets, friends, job (or lack thereof), house, family, trying to be more ecologically aware...

Cousins

I didn't grow up very close to my cousins. On both sides of the family I was much younger than most of my cousins. To add to that, we moved to California and then New Jersey, while everyone else stayed in Illinois. It's not easy to foster close relationships from thousands of miles away.

In the last few years, I've started getting to know one cousin who is very close in age to me, who also is recently married, and is having her first child in three weeks. She's a nutball! But it's fun!

I went to visit her last night in an attempt to keep her mind off pregnancy, and we played 90's Trivial Pursuit while Luke broke in all his cousin-to-be's toys (sorry about that, little one, your big cousin is wrecking your stuff). 90's Trivial Pursuit? Kind of a pain in the ass. Since we were all doing horribly, we started giving clues.

I asked a question that had the answer 'Birkenstocks'. The question was something about the colors they came in, like Chili Pepper Red. So to start them out, I said 'Think German'.

My cousin came out with 'British Knights'. Like I said, NUTBALL!

Well, you didn't need to out yourself! And uh, I'm engineer, I took nothing liberal-y except Arthurian Legends. And I left that typo there to prove my engineer point.
