- It's family reunion time!
These are my parents! Or transparents for those who care to know. I'm in the middle!
The entire Nate S. family is going on a five day cruise next week! We're hopping on a Royal Caribbean cruiseline and I'm taking this blog somewhere you'd never expect it to go--Hispaniola!
The trip is going to be a family reunion of sorts except for the fact that all my extended family is either imprisoned or have discontinued all communication with us. Because my parents swapped sex organs, we are dead to them! However, each night we invite the aunts and uncles aboard in our imaginations with a fun game we enjoy doing in which we take turns delivering our reclusive relatives' favorite catchphrases until one of us guesses who we're talking about.
For example, to emulate Uncle Tony talking to Aunt Angela, I might go, "Yo Angela, what's a wrong a with the spaghetti?! You no likey the spaghetti?" In the case of cousin Alex in conversation with cousin Mallory, I would say, "Gee Mal, what's not to love about Ronald Reagan's new tax incentives?" Or the best is when Father-to-Mother does his-to-her spot on impression of Grandma Garret when she yells, "Girls! Girls! Girls!" at her scandalous daughters/daughter-to-son. It's almost as if they're right there with us.
Fun times shall be had! Come sail away with me next Monday!
