conversation x2

So I spent a majority of Labor Day weekend actually helping out a spiritual youth group, doing chaperone-type stuff and assisting some of the workshop leaders who were giving various talks to kids aged 13-17. The Labor Day event was geared towards kids visiting from all over the nation who were interested in seeing a more spiritual perspective on how Hollywood (and the entertainment industry) works, and I was asked by the director of the program to be part of a panel discussion Saturday night.

So just in case you couldn't tell from previous conversations recorded in my blog, here's how you can tell that I was raised in a family of smart asses:

Me: So, _____ asked me to speak on a panel Saturday night for the youth group event.

Mom: Really? What about?

Me: She asked if I could talk to the kids about how I use spirituality on a daily basis to help me overcome challenges with my career.

Aunt: That's great!

Me: Yeah, so I thought I'd stand up, and the first thing I would say to the kids would be-

Aunt and Mom: "What career?"

Me: Hah. Hah. Hah. Very funny.

(Pause)

Me: I hate you both.

Also, in case you're wondering, my mom and aunt are identical twins, so quite frequently I'm not only getting crap from both of them, but crap from both of them at the EXACT SAME TIME. You try arguing with twice the regular amount of sarcasm.

Anyways, I hope you all had lovely Labor Day weekends and are enjoying a short week as much as I am :) Happy Tuesday to y'all!

Hilarious!
I'm curious about what you said on the panel...if you are dry for blogging topics, you might consider. :)

Your mom and aunt sound so likable. I am just hoping their sarcasm is steeped in actual support.

Di said...

AHAHAHAHA. LOL. Since you're on IMDB, I consider that "having a career," if it makes you feel any better.

Di said...

P.S. Just realized the "Ahahaha" and "lol" in all caps is redundant. Blame it on the time difference. Or the language barrier. Or the wine. Might be the wine.

How fun are they? And it's wonderful that you have such a great sense of humor that you can roll with them. How did the weekend go with the kids? XOXO

Iva said...

LOL! well they ARE identical twins ;-)

drollgirl said...

oh god. the dynamic duo of twins might be a bit difficult to deal with when they jump on the sarcastic bandwagon! oy.

how fun to have a sacrastic family! I bet family dinners are hilarious.

and the Labor Day event sounds like a great thing to be a part of, so jealous right now

Gwen said...

LMAO!! We do go to the firing range a lot but when we go it's always at the end of the day so we only shoot a few magazines. Mainly I'm along to help pick up the spent casings with Brian so he can reload them. We normally shoot 70-100 rounds and then we'll come home with an additional 100. I guess it gives him something to do and keeps the cost down since ammo is so high. Wow!!! I totally sound like some gun carrying freak. :) XOXO

HA! My parents have a lot of differences but they lecture me in stereo too! Or, what's really annoying, is when they are slightly out of sync and I'll get something about 30 seconds later from one than the other. But that doesn't sound like it would happen in your case too much. =P

Archana said...

Haha my sister and I usually end up saying the same exact thing as the same time, it's weird. People around us tend to get thrown off by it, lol.

Hey Phoenix...
At least your Mom and Aunt will keep you at the top of your 'sarcastic' game.
There is nothing as cool as hip, witty family banter...
I'm glad you had an enjoyable Labor Day Weekend...be good 'kay,

SCAMP...

Jo said...

Hahaha! A family of smart asses sounds like a good time to me! And at least you'll never want for good and quick witted conversation! :)

Ida Nielsen said...

Weeee....hahaha!! I like your 'conversation' posts-so fun!! Your mom sounds like such a cool lady.

Kristin Quinn said...

I think someday you may have to start another blog entirely dedicated to the conversations that take place between you and your mom and aunt ;)
