    Potage.

    This man who used to be my cousin's boss came in the door and said, "Hey man, you got any potage?!"  Now, everyone is on their phones texting and calling weed connections, with the exception of me because I don't do that stuff. Earlier my cousin said, "If drugs were...

    I love my family so much.

    They're all such wonderful and incredible people. But at times I really don't feel like I fit into my family. My Dad got into a car accident almost 5 years back leaving him with brain damage, and a broken back. He is unable to do pretty well anything and it's greatly affected my...

    My family members (from my father's side) look

    insecure about themselves. My uncles, my grandparents, even my father share this insecure personality. 1- Usely hesitate before doing something. 2- Often change gesture many times in 1 conversation. 3- Tend to smile at you, even if you're not smiling (fake smile). 4- They...

    My dad is the type of dad to tell you about how

    it would be wiser to allow him to buy ingredients and cook a delicious meal than to spend a hundred just for a very slight meal in a restaurant. He did this once and said it out loud. My mom would be the type to barge inside my room like it's nothing and get angry when you try...

    Weird, But Love Them!

    My family is so weird! The way we show affection is by mock threats! XD It's normal to us show our love and appreciation, by threatening physical harm. lol. When someone says something cool or does something funny, we tend to say, "I should punch you in the nose!"...

    Our Names.

    My cousin was named "Cory" after 80s singer, Corey Hart.  Fourteen months later I was born, and named after an 80s hairband which I will not mention here.WHY US?!?

    We're All A Little Crazy

    My family is totally weird...mostly we (the kids) all seem to have some sort of disorder or another (undiagnosed, this is just speculation....). OCD, possible anxiety disorders, anti-social-ness (is that a disorder?), ADHD, possible learning disorders....we're so messed up you...

    There is a saying that I run across

    periodically that if you can't identify who the weird person in your family is it is because the weird one is you. Well this came up this weekend and I was left trying to figure out who exactly is the weird person in my family. As I struggled to do this I was getting more and...

    I'm not sure, but I think the sheer size of my

    family contributes to the weirdness. My mother is the youngest of seven. Every one of her siblings had at least one child. Most of those children now have children of their own. It's crazy. Add in the fact that they all like to drink and things get even crazier. I think the...

    We All Do

    I think we all have a bit of weirdo in our family, maybe not in our eyes, but to someone else, a perfectly sane family may appear crazy to them and on like that.

    My family is a bit weird.

    . But tell me what you think.. Whenever something happens to me (usually bad) or if I'm thinking about doing something... At least two people in my family have a dream about me... And then don't leave me alone about it..

    I think everyone has some kind of oddity in their relations.  It keeps it interesting.  My parents removed all of the trim in their home over 10 years ago.  They never replaced it.  My mother did it without my dad's permission, so as revenge he isn't going to...

    House Rules
