Should Have Inquired Down Another Avenue

| Related | May 29, 2013

(My sister and I are big Broadway fans. My dad decides to surprise us by getting the family tickets to see ‘Avenue Q’.)

Me: “Four tickets for…” *gasps*Avenue Q!”

Dad: “Yup!”

Me: “AAAGH, OH MY GOD, YES! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!”

(I start flailing happily. My sister comes running down the stairs.)

Sister: “What’s wrong?”

Me: “AVENUE Q TICKETS!”

Sister: “SHUT UP!”

Me: “YES!”

Sister: “OH MY GOD!”

Aunt: “What’s Avenue Q?”

Dad: “Oh, no…”

Me: “YOU’RE JOKING!”

(My aunt has a sudden look of fear.)

Me: “IT’S LIKE SESAME STREET—”

Sister: “FOR ADULTS—”

Me: “AND THEY TALK ABOUT ADULT STUFF—”

Sister: “LIKE SEX—”

Me: “AND GAY PEOPLE—”

Sister: “AND LOSING JOBS—”

Me: “AND GARY COLEMAN—”

(My sister and I continue shouting broken sentences at my aunt as she shrinks down in fear.)

Me: “DOESN’T IT SOUND AMAZING?!”

Aunt: “You know what… never mind. I’ll just look it up myself.”
