Family Issues in a Nutshell

It all started at Jonah's Lacrosse practice when I started getting sick of taking pictures like this

I know, I know, I am such an awesome photographer. I am really getting into it. So if any of you want me to come over and take some pictures of your babies, I would love the practice!

But back to my story.

Then I looked up in the sky and took a picture of this.

So I quickly sent the picture to my family telling them about this really cool thing I saw that I wanted to share with them. And here is the exchange between me and my dad that resulted.

Angela:  Hey everyone, I just looked up in the sky and look what I saw! The one in the middle is the stealth bomber, it circled back on its own a second time really low and was totally silent and it looks paper thin-- incredible.

Bud: Very neat. I bet if you look you will find out there was an air show in the area. Did I tell you about the time I got to touch a stealth bomber?

Angela:  Nooo it wasn't an air show, it was just something super cool that I happened to see because I happen to live near a little town called Langley. 
              You are trying to ruin this for me.

Bud:  Are you sure it wasn't just a kite? They are super quiet and paper thin?

Angela:  This is just like the time I was 10 and won the blue ribbon at the at the science fair and you just patted me on the head and said, "Honey, I think you just found that on the ground."

Bud:  I was even proud of you for finding it on the ground!

Angela: My therapist is going to have a field day with this.

Bud: Shouldn't you be busy getting your "therapists" ready for church?

Angela: Those aren't "therapists," they are "toxic enablers"

Bud: Here is a picture I took when I recently went to a state fair.


Angela: Oh that is so fake there is no way you would ever see a goat that white.

I'll stop here because then the conversation started to get weird.
