Family Funny

My mom's side of the family has a reunion that takes place every other August. This year's was as fun as expected, including the usual visiting, eating (oh, the eating), and the talent show. (My mom's running for president, by the way; stay tuned for her act!)

My sister Michelle and I are always expected to perform the "Whimper and Whine" skit, which is forty years old. Seriously, I've been performing it on and off (against my will, mostly) since I was 12 years old. This year, Michelle and I decided to give it a twist as a surprise. With any luck, you'll find it entertaining. [Apologies for the "faded" look to the video. You'll forget about that soon enough, I think.]

In case that wasn't entertaining enough, I'm going to go out on a limb here and embarrass the heck out of myself by sharing an "outtake," if you will, videotaped with Michelle's phone when we were first getting together to practice at her house. I laughed so hard, I....

Well, just watch. (click on the word "watch" to get to the hyperlink)

In my defense, I was totally hunched over with my stomach folded up; that costume was super uncomfortable. Also, I'm over 50 years old and have had two kids. Plus, when I'm with Michelle, I can't help being silly sometimes; we have a lot of fun! (The best part is I have three other sisters with whom I crack up on a regular basis, as well.) It wasn't the first time I've laughed that hard, and I'm happy to assure that it won't be the last*.

*Don't worry; I kept everything under control during the talent show!lol
