FAMILY – Oh my , you Finally called!! You never take time to call. Your brother calls us every night. Why have you not called us in so long?
ME- Gee, I can’t imagine why…
FAMILY – Well what a shock, you have finally graced us with your presence! The heavens are going to open up and hail!
ME – I wish it would hail. It would give me an excuse to leave.
FAMILY – You seem to be having some issues with anxiety and depression. You should go talk to someone about it. (anyone, as long as it isn’t us…)
ME – Yeah ok , I’ll go get that fixed this week with a therapist, so that when I come back to visit you, you won’t feel uncomfortable with my mood.
FAMILY – Great, do that. Also, you are invited to a family reunion
