So, as you guys have probably noticed, I'm back from spending "quality" time with my family for the holiday. I'm on a somewhat self-imposed ban from writing about my family on this site other than the casual reference to them (someday, I'll probably write a book or two about them since there's too much funny shit that happens in my family - I'll change the names to protect the not-so-innocent). However, the Thanksgiving holiday was a great time. I had a great time with my father, my sister and her husband. They have a great house (first time I've visited there), and the meal was perfect; we all had fun.

On the way up there, I drove my father, for about a two hour drive. He was probably dreading the ride with me since he knew I'd want to talk politics. He hates talking politics with me since "it pisses him off too much." But, we ended up talking and arguing anyway. So much so, that we missed the exit we needed to take. So, I called up my sister, and the following conversation ensued:

"Hey, I missed...."

"Where ARE you!"

"Um, I'm trying to explain, we missed the exit, and I need to know if I take exit 15 coming FROM Boston if that will put me back onto 128?"

"Why did you miss the exit?"

"Well, we just did, can I take this exit or not?"

"I don't know. Why is it taking you so long to get here?"

"Um, what I really need to know is should I take this exit or not?, because I'm about to miss it!"

"But why did you miss the exit?!"

At this point I threw the phone to my father and said "Fuck this, I'm taking the exit!" I turned to my father and said "Let's just head into Boston and have a few beers."

Of course we didn't, and I did end up on the right road, so it worked out. On the way back, we were talking politics and other hot topics, and ended up missing the exit for the MASS Pike (how the fuck do you do this! There's like 10 signs for it!), we almost ended up in RI. I yelled at him for not navigating, he yelled at me for talking too much, it was good father-son bonding.

Thank god I only have to deal with my family once a year.

Oh, and thank you to Nony (damn, it was Nony day on the 26th!) and Surfer for all the links when I wasn't able to surf the web!
