Spending Time With Easy's Family

This morning I woke up late. I felt badly about that because Easy and I were supposed to run some errands before I took him to the airport.

They weren't complicated or numerous errands, just a stop at the AT&T store and breakfast at Chick-Fil-A.

But when I called to apologize for being late, he didn't even answer. I figured that meant he was asleep.

I was right. He called me back when I was getting of the expressway with a groggy voice to tell me his parents were joining us for breakfast.

I get to his house, and it reminds me a bit of the McAllister's house in Home Alone.

Except Chris was the only one headed to an international flight.

And there were only 6 family members at the house.

But it was a good time. His twin nieces were playing with the Christmas ornaments that weren't yet on the recently acquired tree.

He and his sister were taking turns to see who could be the latest to start their day.

And his parents were doing lots of other things besides getting dressed.

And amongst all this, there was laughter, jokes, fussing at everyone by everyone else to be more timely.

I wanted to leave Easy's house at 9:00 am. We ended up leaving at around 10:45.

So we exchanged the stop at the AT&T store for a 1-800 call and Chick-Fil-A for McDonald's.

Because we didn't have time to eat breakfast with his parents anymore, Easy asked them if they wanted to ride with us to the airport.

They explained to him that he was old as hell and didn't need an escort the airport.

Then when he said he was leaving and would see them next year, they both suddenly appeared downstairs, fully dressed, and upset that he would think of leaving without a proper goodbye.'

I think I am really going to love his family. They are hilarious.

They're all so quirky and unique that I feel like my quirky and unique-ness has a place to fit in.

I'll write later to tell about the airport adventures.
