In which he supports assholes

 

Yesterday was Daniels 18th birthday and Kevin and I were talking about how the dynamics of the household change EVERY time a child comes home or goes back to school.  Right now I have all three of my kids home and it’s like frenzy around here.

 

First of all, Keely always had her friends around THIS house, which I loved and actually took the name “koolaidmom” for many of my logins but sometimes it’s just plain crazy.  For example, yesterday Keely and I had to go down to Duke for a checkup and an MRI (for Keely’s hip) and when we were coming home Keely received a text that informed her that all her friends were hanging by the pool.  BY OUR POOL.

 

People are so comfortable hanging at our house that we are NO LONGER even required to participate.  So, the point is that with both girls and Daniel around, things are chaotic and rarely quiet.  The result is that nobody ever feels like they get the attention they deserve.

 

So, back to last night.  We were talking about how quiet it will be when it’s just the three of us again as the girls will be back to school.

 

Me:                  I like it when it’s just so chill around here.

Kevin:             Yeah, it’s so easy with just Daniel

Me:                  He has a party tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday night

Kevin:             He’s definitely gotten much more social lately

Me:                  One more year and we’re empty nesters

Kevin:             I’m going to make it a point to hang out with him a lot

(Daniel is definitely Kevin’s best friend.  They watch and talk sports all the time, have lunch EVERY Saturday and Sunday and generally just hang)

Me:                  You know, I need to start boning up on my sports more

Kevin:             What?

Me:                  Yeah, when I was in California I had ESPN withdrawal and actually checked out SportsCenter so I wouldn’t get behind

Kevin:             That’s pretty funny

Me:                  I mean, when Daniel leaves I’M GOING TO HAVE TO WATCH SPORTS WITH YOU

Kevin:             You don’t have to do that

Me:                  I’m going to throw you a bone.  After all, you work your ass off to support the household.

Kevin:             Did you say assholes?

Me:                  what?

Kevin:             Did you say I support the assholes?

Me:                  hahaha…no I said “HOUSEHOLD”

Kevin:             I thought you said assholes

Me:                  Nope, but actually, the household is full of assholes.

Kevin:             Yeah, but you don’t usually admit it.

So there you are.  Kevin MacDonald.  A man who works his ass off to support assholes!

 

I’m just saying…

    Last night, I said to my friend something about “speeding tickets”.

    Her reply: “You were eating with the kids? So….”

    I wonder what Doctor Freud would say about Kevin hearing you say you ‘support the assholes’… Well, good thing he’s no longer around, right? And is that really true what you said about people are so comfortable hanging at your house that you are no longer even required to participate? They must be REALLY comfortable and I admit I’m so jealous!

    Hahaha! Nice.

    This one time, I was talking to my coworker, and I said “relocate” and he thought I called the person I was talking about “Really gay”. Which made me laugh, cause coworker is, in fact, really gay. It made the whole thing funnier. And we both laughed.
