It’s my parent’s 33rd anniversary today. I love them so much. They’re the biggest dorks I know. They’re the reason me and my siblings are the dorks we are today. My dad would spend his Friday nights at my mom’s parents house to watch the Muppet Show with them, they went on a date to see Star Wars and my dad guessed Darth Vader was Luke’s dad, along with a dozen other things. They’re also the hardest workers I know. They moved to town and became Baskin-Robbins franchisees when they were 25 and 26 years-old, with my two oldest brothers, Steve and Tim. …In the 80’s, when they weren’t at the ice cream shop, employees and customers knew they could find one of them at the drug store next door, playing Galaga or Dr. Mario, trying to hold up their high score on the arcade machine. We were Baskin-Robbins for 16 years, but we’ve been an independent ice cream shop since November 1998. We weren’t expected to last 3 years, but we’ve lasted over 11 years. They’re working today. I asked if they wanted me to work, but they have too much to do, and my mom has a special cake to make for tomorrow. I couldn’t think of anything to get them, even if it was just a movie. They never have the time to sit down and watch a movie. I don’t think they’re going out tonight, because they’re going to be gone next weekend. And I can’t ask them, because they’ll think I’m up to something. And I am up to something.
Tonight I’m making them a really nice steak dinner, along with some “mock” mashed potatoes (they’re on a low-carb diet) and some other stuff, put out some flowers, maybe get some candles, and put out some movies/DVDs/blu-rays and hopefully they’ll watch some and not work tonight. But I’m going to hide whenever they get home, probably in the garage or backyard (because that’s better than just having my car be gone and them wonder where I am) and then I’ll leave and probably just go to the ice cream shop for the night, since Daniel’s working all night. Hopefully it’ll work out. I have to time it all perfectly.
My dad sure can rock a white tux, huh?

NEVER MIND. THEY’RE GOING OUT TO EAT.
Sigh.

My parents. My sister.

The things I find in my parents’ bedroom…

My buddy. I’m visiting for the weekend.

What the hell, FedEx?

Daniel and I came home from doing an errand for my parents and Chuck was squinting, with watery eyes, his face was messed up a bit, smelled a bit weird, and he was going crazy like he does after a bath usually (running around, trying to get stuff out of his ears/eyes and clawing the couches). So, in comforting him, I kissed his head like I normally would. My lips started to burn a bit. Daniel came outside, where I was with Chuck, and said his lips were burning and he had a sore throat (my sore throat was unnoticed by me, because I’ve had one), and he kissed Chuck, too. When we got home we had a package on our bench from FedEx. So we came to a conclusion…

Thanks a ton, FedEx guy, for pepperspraying my dog. I’m sorry you’re intimidated by a 10 pound, 10 year-old terrier-chihuahua that does nothing but lay around and sleep all day and only gets up for cheese. Never mind the fact that there was clearly nobody home as there were no cars outside our house, at 3:30pm, with our dog outside. Obviously you couldn’t have left it outside the fence or against our garage. No seriously, come onto our private property and pepperspray our dog. Totally fine.

Sooo…this happened today.

Who has Christmas cards up in February? This girl. Who’s going to take them down soon? Probably not me.

Last one.
It snowed in January of 1999, the only time in my life it’s snowed here.
My dad has this named “my girls”. That’s mostly why I’m posting it :3

Yep, that’s twelve-year-old me in the middle.
