My dad used to tie the laces on our shoes with 100 knots if we didn't untie our shoes before taking them off.
My mom made a sign for the dryer sheets that said USE ONLY ONE SHEET PER LOAD.
My parents use a baking dish for a bird water dish. An expensive baking dish, like the kind you buy from Pampered chef.
My dad collects really ugly hats. Super ugly.
My mom likes Tiger balm. It smells something awful but she swears it helps with sore muscles.
My grandpa Dick always had butterscotch discs in his pocket. But my dad always has toothpicks behind his ear.
My grandpa Keith was a tease. Once we were coming out of a restaurant and nearing the car when he popped open the trunk with his automatic keychain. My Aunt Marion, who was the closest to the car, screamed and said 'you almost knocked my boob off' in the middle of the parking lot.
My mom ordered her set of china on the internet. From ebay. She picked out each plate and she has a lovely collection of them, and none of them match. This might be my favorite one.
My dad wears Super Mario pants. In public.
My dad likes to shoot squirrels in the backyard and then he tells us that they are 'sleeping'.
My sister Reva went through a flamingo stage as a child. We still have proof of it in our storage room.
My dad thinks if you run enough water down the disposal that it won't get clogged up. But the other day, he put all the potato peels down the drain and it clogged. My mom laughed.
We had a hamster named Kirby. He died in the winter. We couldn't bury him so my mom put him in the freezer. One day I heard noises coming from inside.
