Powder Keg Surprise

| BC, Canada | Related | June 9, 2012

(My mom and I are planning my birthday party. I am about to turn legal drinking age, and my mom speaks with a Korean accent.)

Mom: “How many of your friends are coming? I need to know because I want to make sure the keg is big enough.”

Me: *ecstatically* “A keg?! Really?!

Mom: “Yep! It’s your big day, after all.”

Me: “Oh, h*** yes!”

(Fast-forward a few weeks, on my birthday. Most of my friends have arrived, and they’ve been looking forward to the keg as much as I have.)

Me: “Mom, just about everyone’s here. Can we bring out the keg now?”

Mom: “Sure! I’ll be with you shortly.”

Me: “Don’t you need any help? If you want, [friend] and I can carry it over here.”

Mom: *glares at me* “What? Relax, I’ll be fine. It’s your birthday!”

Me: “Are you sure? Isn’t it pretty heavy?”

Mom: “It’s okay! Just go play with your friends!”

Me: “Okay, if you say so…”

(A few minutes later, my mom came back with a CAKE. Fortunately, my friends were very forgiving!)

(It’s around 2 AM and my dad is surfing online, when Max, our Chihuahua, runs into the living room and puts his front paws on my dad’s knee.)

Dad: *looks down at Max* “What is it, little buddy?”

(He runs to my parents’ room, then quickly runs back into the living room. He looks at my dad, and wags his tail.)

Dad: “What do you want, Max?”

Me: “Daddy, I think Max is saying that it’s time for you to come to bed.”

(He wags his tail, then runs up to my dad and puts his front paws on my dad’s knee again, and whines.)

Dad: “It is late, isn’t it?” *he sighs as he pats Max’s head* “Okay, okay. I’m coming.”

(He gets up and follows Max into the bedroom.)

Me: *shaking my head and laughing* “Good boy, daddy! Good boy!”

Mom: “He can have potato wine!”

Me: “That’s called vodka, mom.”
