Growing up in the family I did if you didn't have a few inside jokes you just weren't living. I've been thinking a lot of my family over the past couple of days for some reason and wanted to pass on some of the inside things we shared. Only not the explanations. Just the "punchline," if you will. It won't make a lick of sense to you, unless of course, you fall into one of these categories:
Girl Cousin over the age of 43:
'86 Corolla: My dream car
Slave labor =)
Sister or Girl Cousin between the ages of 39 and 42:
"How about a nice bowl of chicken soup?" "NOT CHICKEN SOUP, TUNA SOUP, TUNA FISH SALAD!"
"Old man, you know...shpllbbt"
"I do my job every day!"
"Get out of here, Gerald!"
Girl Cousin between the ages of 38 and 39:
"Anoshnurshnah...and all of a sudden I heard..."
"I wanna marry huh, dad!"
Boy Cousin between the ages of 36 and 37:
Moon boots and highwaters
Girl Cousin between the ages of 36 and 37:
Bathing in Prell
Waking up to your cousin having deposited her supper all over her, you, your bed...
Matching 70's tube tops
Boy Cousin between the ages of 29 and 31:
"I told you I'd be back, didn't I?"
Girl Cousin between the ages of 25 and 27:
1,323 pictures drawn of me and for me
Your favorite babysitter
All of the Above, as well as any member of the Smith family not recognized:
Now, it's your turn. If you leave a comment (and I REALLY hope you do), leave me just a line from one of your family's private jokes or inside things. Don't explain, just leave the line. I think I'll laugh even harder if you don't tell me what it means.
And you thought I had such thought provoking thoughts. Serves you right.
