We love our family, but it’s always a little bit of an adventure when we see them to celebrate our birthday.
Sure, they’re the sweetest things around, always there to offer help, fresh baked cookies and a lot of hugs, but they never seem to relate to anything that’s going on with us. It’s like we’re walking into a damn interrogation, asking us questions like who we’re dating, when we’re having kids and how we like our jobs.
What’s worse than telling them all the same things we did the last time we saw them, can be the gifts they think we’ll want.
If there’s one thing to know about old people, it’s that they remember what they think they heard. So when you mention you’re really into fishing, you can fully expect a tackle box or fishing stringâ€”but know that it’ll be recycled from your Grandpa or bought at the thrift store.
Since our birthday was yesterday, we say thanks to ‘em for even remembering to send a present, but we’d rather drive over there for the hugs and cookies than say thanks for one of these gifts.
These were cool when we were like, what, eight-years-old? For some reason though, there are actually people who still think of you as a little kid and emulates throwing like Nolan Ryan or jumping like Michael Jordan.
So while you may be thirty now, they still think you’re collecting rookie cards toÂ check prices of in your Beckett.
