WHAT DID YOU SAY?
Is your family like ours? Every time you gather for a special event, the same stories about your childhood get told and re-told. Usually the stories are about a funny and slightly embarrassing thing you did or said. You take turns telling the story, everyone has a good laugh and it’s fun to share the stories with younger generations (are we that old that there are generations after us?)
My family always gets together on December 27 to celebrate my dad’s birthday. This year I decided to immortalize my siblings by printing each one of their “famous” quotes and making them share their own story with the crowd. Lots of fun for them and lots of fun for me setting the words in a meaningful way. I think our future gatherings will be a lot quieter with everyone worried about what they say and whether or not it will be set in print! -MC
