I just have to post this, so when I go back and look at my posts I can be ashamed of myself.
Last night, we had dinner and such at my grandparents house. My brother and I decided to play the Penis game during the after dinner chatter. Now, my grandpa can hardly hear so he just sits there and nods his head and tries to interrupt every now and then to get his five cents in before he forgets it. Grandma talks non stop and doesn’t pay attention. Even my dad would take part in the Penis game. This went on for about an hour or so.. At one point, mid conversation, my grandpa yells, “Where the hell are these peanuts they keep yelling about?! Don’t we have some in the cupboard?!” which throws my brother to the ground choking for air and in tears. A little later on, grandma finally decides to take her turn and yells ‘PEANUTS!!” and we are all sobbing pretty much at this point.. and then she says “Seriously, we have some in the cupboard..”.
I think Grandpa caught on because at one point he tried to interrupt my Dad and Grandma’s discussion by saying, “Say, I think your kids learned a new word..” but it didn’t work. As we left, my Dad asked my Grandma if she honestly thought we were yelling “Peanuts” all night.. she swears that’s what she thought. My dad just shook his head and laughed.
