Square Glasses are for People with Big Noses

My dad and my SIL, JuJuBeez, have a friendly, loving, ongoing sparring match going. It started the first day they met. My dad was watching TV, I believe. He is always watching TV, and if it wasn't sports, it was probably the news. He loves to yell at the announcers and their obvious stupidity.

My BB brought JuJuBeez to the house to meet my folks for the first time. After their introduction, my dad asks her, "Did you know today is Adolf Hitler's birthday?" Now, I would be totally floored if the guy I was dating introduced me to his dad and that was the first thing he said. I know I would stand their stammering. Does he expect an answer? What the hell do you say to that? I am easily flummoxed.

Well, the Beez is not easily cowed and she is definitely not one to let a remark like that pass unanswered. "Darn, and I forgot to buy him a birthday card." Silence. Crickets. I thought it was a cool answer.

Now they banter back and forth and it is always entertaining. We had a BBQ last night at my parents' house. JuJuBeez was in charge of setting the table. Plates, napkins, silverware, glasses. We sit down to enjoy the delicious carne ranchera. My dad pours his drink, and then mutters, "Who gave me the square glass?" JuJuBeez gulps. Uh oh. We look over at my dad who is now smiling a mischievous smile. Beez confesses to said indiscretion and then he says, "You know, square glasses are good for people with big noses" and picks up the glass with his nose wedged nicely in the corner of the glass and takes a big gulp.

Ah, families are such fun~!
