Politicking Them Off

| Related | September 21, 2013

(My family has just finished having dinner to celebrate my brother-in-law’s birthday. Somehow, my brother-in-law and father start to discuss politics, making everyone else in the room very uncomfortable.)

Brother-In-Law: “At least Obama went in and got Bin Laden.”

Father: “Using strategies and policies that Bush put in place! He was against the war in the first place! Look at Syria; he made a comment about a line that they could not cross, not that I’d trust him with a potato-gun, but still—”

Me: “—WELL I DISTRUST ALL POLITICIANS, BUT I LOVE MY FAMILY! SO LET’S GO SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND CUT THE FREAKIN’ CAKE BEFORE I SMACK ONE OF YOU IN THE FACE!”

(My mom and my sisters burst out laughing. My dad and my brother-in-law are stunned for a good ten minutes.)
