One of the good things about having a big family is that you can always have people you love visiting you.
Last night my nephew Jacob and his sweet girlfriend Rachel slept over.
After a few little bites on Jacob Debby welcomed them with open paws.
They are both leaving for college this week so I guess they wanted to squeeze a little something out of the Big Apple before starting that journey.
I tried to give them both some encouraging words. I explained that after college life goes down rapidly and they will probably never have fun again so enjoy it.
When Jacob was a little boy he met David who showed him his knives and told him about all the guns he had.
Though he, Jacob, was no longer interested in either of those he had a memory of David being a scream so when I told him I had plans with David for dinner he wanted to come with us.
I said he could but added that he must be aware that David is a terrible person with a level of maturity that stopped at the age Jacob was when last he met him.
And my man David didn’t disappoint. He entered the apartment waving his umbrella in front of Debby which did not sit well with her at all.
We had cocktails and chatted while Debby snarled and pulled to bite him. David threatened to kill her in one breath and in the other begged me to put her on the other side of me so she couldn’t eat him, something that she was dying to do.
We finally went to the restaurant that David picked because he wanted Peking duck.
Now I am prepared to take abuse because I am a hypocrite. So have at it.
I eat some meats but I do not want to know from whence they came.
This restaurant served the duck with it’s head on!
Rachel and I almost puked.
No duck for us and now duck is on my no eat list along with pig and lamb soon to be followed by beef.
And BTW the rest of the food stunk too. Feel free to IM me if you want the name of the restaurant.
Again David didn’t disappoint. He regaled the kids with stories of his life dropping an occasional racial or gender slur and wound up the evening with some horrible stories that I will save you all by not repeating.
I told the kids right in front of David while he looked on proudly, “Remember I warned you. He’s the worst person I know”.
Not to change the subject but I think I’ll change the subject.
I do want to say one thing about age. Sometimes it hits you in the face when you least expect it.
I wouldn’t have been surprised if Jacob and Rachel didn’t know who John Wayne was or even Frank Sinatra.
But these two had no idea who NSYNC is.
That ain’t right.
