I have always had this really unique gift.
It is the ability to piss off my parents like no one else.
I really don't know how I do it,
I just do.
And now I find that I can do it from 200 miles away without doing absolutely anything.
Am I good or what?
For some reason, I was expected to be out to my parents today.
We never go out on Christmas.
Always a few days after.
But, I get a phone call from my sister at noon to see if I was going out there.
I said no and Mom went ballistic.
I could hear her yelling from across the room.
She fixed all this extra food.
Not my fault.
I called tonight and only talked to Dad.
Apparently she was still mad, because he didn't ask if I wanted to talk to her when I asked how she was.
Dad said they expected me because I have been out there every other year.
We always stay home.
We have not gone out there on Christmas day for several years.
I guess I am going to have to call every year and let them know.
What's Christmas without a little drama?
