Family is a crazy thing. You’re biologically linked to someone, yet there are times when you might wonder if the stork left you on the wrong doorstep. Or maybe that’s just me. I’m also a twin who insists if I didn’t look so much like my sister there’s no way we’d be related. Or friends for that matter. It’s just that we’re so different, disagree about everything, yet we’re forced to kiss and makeup because THAT’S WHAT SISTERS DO. At least that’s what my mom said.

Now, in-laws? Well, that’s a whole other enchilada because, really, you pick them. When choosing a spouse, you also choose in-laws. And you somehow make it work. Yesterday was my father-in-law’s birthday and I tweeted the following:

This, of course, led to questions and accusations on the internet from friends, but allow me to clarify: He wanted those shoes!! He causally mentioned it during dinner one night. I’m a great listener. Duh.

JD took responsibility and bought his dad a birthday gift and it was received with sincere appreciation. I, however, would like to point out that while my father-in-law opened the gift, HE WAS ALSO WEARING THE SKETCHERS I BOUGHT HIM FOR CHRISTMAS.

Booyah.

This leads me to another installment of Kisses and Disses

This week’s DISSES go to…
*Parking tickets in Philadelphia. We were tourists…how were we supposed to know how far to park from a stop sign?!
*The History Channel. For causing my husband to lose hours of his life watching the documentaries about aliens and/or monks. Or worse, alien monks.
*Peeta and Gale in the casting of The Hunger Games Movie. I’m on board with everyone else, but they totally missed the mark with my two favorite boys!

This week’s KISSES go to…
*Herbal tea, Vicks Vapor Rub, saline nasal spray, the green goop I swallowed from a dark bottle of potion I bought from a pedlar in Costa Rica. They aided in my road to health.
*California. For being a state of abundant fresh food, sunshine, and people weirder than me.
*My father-in-law for proving my point.

Happy Friday!

I wouldn’t say we were business nerds but my husband just sent me a Slack message asking me to call him.

If you need me, just follow the trail of empty La Croix cans around my house.
