The Dells: Day Three


Day three consisted of karaoke, poolside margaritas, sunburns, barbeque ribs, alcohol induced belligerence, two shouting matches, an attempt to leave early, tearful confessions, and multiple suicide threats.

And that was just my brother.

Today my sister-in-law is giving us all pedicures. Sharp objects will be involved. Please continue to pray.

Just say when and we can send in a tactical extraction unit for you and George. Is this a hostage situation?

Echo said...

T, we've got the bird in the air and we're ready to extract. Target locks are confirmed and we anticipate minimal civilian casualties. Recommend that CP and G move towards the extraction point before hostiles grow animated...

Tenacious S said...

I think you meant "before the hostiles grow *inebriated*." Phew, quotes and snark markers, that was confusing. Echo check?

Echo said...

Roger, wilco.

Katy said...

oh gee sounds like you will need T and E to help you out there. Maybe you should really think about the detour to Jin. I loved my visit there yummy food good company and all sharp objects are locked away.

Dale said...

The margaritas should always come before the karaoke. What kind of family unit is this? I pray you get your priorities ordered.

Old Lady said...

I think we're related.

T & E: don't tempt me.

K: I did seriously consider making a trek to Jin as you did. It would mean 6 hours in the car though, and silly me, I thought I might want to be here to help avert any further family tragedies.

D: My list may have been out of order. The drinks in my family usually come before, during and after any activity, especially when my mother and brother are around.

OL: Which one are you?

Shame on me.
Am sitting here LMAO &
wishing for more details &
pics!!!

I'm not really laughing at you, I'm laughing with you.
(You are laughing, right? CP? Hellooooo.....?)

I will take a lot for barbeque ribs, but not that much, CP. Not that much.

Sounds like a typical trip to Wisconsin.

J: I have a post in store for you. It involves a cake that looks like a hamburger. You can steal the idea if you'd like (wedding cake?) but my brother may demand royalties.

WT: We should talk. We can work out a deal for you on the ribs. How are you at talking people down?

GM: I agree. Add a dysfunctional family to the mix and it gets even better.

I can smack my own chest threateningly and say, "You wanna go?" After that, I'm not sure.

Coaster Punchman said...

The boys must love that!

poor george said...

Help, I'm being held captive in a cheesy fortune cookie factory! and I think it's in the Wisconsin Dells.

Dale said...

Don't worry, someone will free you George. Beware the Tupperware though.
