Graduation looms close and the family discusses what to serve
at our dual graduation party. Triangles are important. We seem to
suddenly be concerned with appearing 'classy'. Andrew is bombarded
with suggestions for senior pictures. Then he gives a command
performance on his ocarina. You're invited to the graduation
Pkarlgh! The grandkids are summoned from the room because they were
eating birdseed in the playroom (not all of them, just Emmi).
We discuss weird world records. We've thrown open the
suggestion line too, Pkarlgh. You can suggest world records for me
to break. Send suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Road Trip! Got a show with Luke McKinney and we piled into the
ole' mini-van. We discussed comedy clubs and 'clean comedy'.
Apparently Luke was the funniest guy on stage at our last show!
So the competition is heating up. We discuss bad comedy and
Todd Hawkins name comes up. I can't control the conversations!
I just operate the recorder. There's no such thing as
'funniest' and I stand by that! Nobody agrees with me but I
don't care. Then we discuss how cupcakes are a good indicator for
how good the week has been. Luke explains his comedy goals. And I
offer a suggestion for you, Pkarlgh, if you ever want to suffer
I've included a short clip from Luke's set that totally threw
me off my game. You can listen to it...
Our gang went to 'The Escape Room' in Indianapolis. We were
supposed to steal the Mona Lisa. We almost got away with it but ran
out of time. I blame everyone else.
Lori almost runs over some folks (though she says otherwise).
I retell the story about the time I got hit by a bus and earned my
nickname. Tabby reminds us of everyone's nicknames (which she
assigned). Then we remember one of our favorite memories from our
family cruise a few years back too.
I have an idea for a Comedy getaway at a resort. Would you
want to come to something like that, Pkarlgh?
Andrew talks with me about Senior Skip Day. It's pretty
inspiring. Also, Kiki the bird chirps some.
