Here’s an example of how “interesting” the people in my family can be.
I put up my Christmas tree a few weeks ago. I got this Christmas tree from my mother. She dropped it off at my house on a Saturday afternoon. A few hours later she called to see how the set-up was going. Here’s pretty much how the conversation went:
“Hi, I was just calling to see how the tree is going?”
“Oh I finished setting everything up already.”
“WHAT?! DID YOU FEATHER THE BRANCHES?! DID YOU GET ALL THE LIGHTS WORKING?!”
“HOW DID YOU DO THAT?!!?!?”
“Ummm, I dunno, I just put up the tree.”
Anyhow, my mom proceeded to phone my sister to find out how in the hell I was able to get the Christmas tree up so fast without it looking like shit.
I dunno, but I have no idea how it takes her a week to put up a tree, and then not take it down until March…
