Yup… It’s about that time of year, again. Family reunions by the dozens! Now if your family is anything like mine, it tends to go a little something like this:
Your parents drag you out of bed at some UNGODLY hour (like 9AM ) and make you get showered and dressed. They want you to look your best so they can show the rest of the family how well they’ve done raising you. You pull yourself together, shower, get dressed and head downstairs only to be sent back up to the tune of, “Oh no… no, no, no… you are not wearing that. Get yourself back upstairs and put on that nice button-down shirt we bought you for school” (yes, the hideous one you never wanted in the first place that you buried WAYYYYY in the back of your closet).
Now that your outfit has been dictated for you, you head back downstairs and your mom looks you up and down, licks her thumb and wipes something off your face (GROSS!) and says something disapproving like, “Well, I guess this is as good as it’s going to get.”
You and your three brothers and sisters (who, believe it or not, have gone through the same thing you just went through — thumb licking and all) head for the station wagon, pushing and shoving the whole way from the house in the never-ending conflict of who gets to sit where. Someone knocks little Davey over in the melee and he gets a grass stain on his khakis (which used to be yours before you grew out of them) and your mother flips out and yells at everyone. Yes, Davey has to go back inside and change, which adds like 15 minutes of sitting in the car getting yelled at while he puts on a new “mother-approved” outfit. Meanwhile, your father has been sitting in the car the whole time (even while you were getting dressed) listening to the ballgame on the radio. He’s played this game before.
Now there’s something you need to know- and you’re probably saying to yourself, “How does he know all this”- it’s because I’ve been there. More times than you can imagine. And I know how to make it all SO easy for yourself. FAMILY REUNION T-SHIRTS! It’s so simple! Whether you’re rocking your family’s coat of arms, a funny “I’m the handsome brother” t-shirt or another selection from our family reunion page, there’s NO WAY your mom can disapprove. Think about it, you won’t have to go back upstairs to change, you won’t get your mom’s spit on your face (maybe- no guarantees) and you’ll be straight kickin’ it in the Astrovan with dad while the rest of your brothers and sisters go through the yearly hell that is family reunion preparation morning.
Don’t say I never did anything for ya!
