...where credit is due.

Consort was describing a relative by marriage, dead many years and scarcely lamented:

"He was the guy who'd come to a wedding and eat all the shrimp."

I was delighted. I made him repeat it. He swore he made it up. He gave me permission to use this anywhere as needed but I'm all but certain I'll forget it before then, so it goes here.

Hey, I know that guy!

Kudos to Consort for the excellent description.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Perhaps I'm due some introspective time.

I thought about you the other day. My Daughter discovered she was missing her socks on the way to volleyball practice and, as luck would have it, we were driving past a Ross. We stopped at the Adidias outlet instead. Lil Skank was not there.

OMG. We are TOTALLY the people who would eat all the shrimp. If there is shrimp, we will eat it. And we might eat more than our share.

OK. We definitely would.

Wait....did Consort say "he?" I could swear he just described my sister in law.

I always get a good laugh when I come here. (-;

I am so anticipating the book. I haven't commented in a while, but I remain a very loyal reader.

THAT guy. I know that guy.

I'll be using the heck out of this.

Yep, that would be my husband. And be careful with your unguarded wedding favor, he's a stasher.

And I'm the one who picks all the cashews and Brazil nuts out of the mixed-nut bowl!

OMG! He was at our wedding!!! Our caterer was telling us after the fact that one guy kept coming up and practically emptying the shrimp platter. They were wondering if he had a baby harp seal hidden under his suit coat! Who knew we were practically related?
