Oh what a day!

We woke up this morning and decided to skip church and go on a family hike. I know, you're absolutely SHOCKED at our sinful ways. Believe it or not, as much fun as it is arriving at church ready to strangle or be strangled by your family every single week for reasons ranging from "he looked at me" to "why is there NEVER any Captain Crunch?", once in a while we throw caution to the wind and do something crazy like take a family hike. Look away if you must, the burden of your disappointment is a small price to pay for a fleeting moment of family unity.

As luck would have it the conversation today was remarkably educational. For example, we learned that a butt-ton (not to be confused with a "button") is significantly more than a butt-load. I was so relieved we were able to clear that up. How embarrassing would it be to use either one of those terms incorrectly? Once the grammar lesson was out of the way we moved on to other important topics like whether or not it is possible to drink an entire gallon of milk in less than an hour without vomiting. This is an easy one for me, as I have milk issues and would never even consider entering a milk drinking contest, a glass of milk served at less than the optimum level of refreshing coldness is enough to make me throw up, but for other members of our family the gauntlet has been thrown down and apparently we will be having a drink-off over the Thanksgiving break. Now is the time to place your bets, in this corner the man who swears that in his youth, much to the dismay of his grocery buying mother, he drank many a gallon in under five minutes, and in this other corner over here, the boy who claims he and his friends have projectile vomited much milk trying to prove their milky manhood.

What is wrong with boys/men?

Don't you worry, I'll let you know how this turns out. There may even be video.
