We interrupt the Strange Family Contest for a health report on Elle.? Yesterday found me lying in a heap of my own snot on my bed sobbing from the pain in my head.? For the second time I fell victim to an ocular migraine.? I was perfectly fine when the trusty family came to get the boy so I could go to work.? I sat down to eat some lunch and watch a little TV when that damn C showed up again.? I knew what was coming and took some pre-emptive pain medication thinking that would help.? Yeah… no.? Somehow I got myself over to the church although I could barely see.? I laid on a couch while other people did my work for me and then somehow drove home.? I’m still not sure how I did that.? About 1/2 way home I started in on a panic attack and thought I was going to throw up.? I called the trusty husband who rushed home and saved me.? Ok, he brought me my woobie and told me it was going to be ok.? A few hours later I could mostly sit up.? We retrieved our child from the trusty family and then he proceeded to melt down in the car on the way home.? That helped the headache.? Heavy drugs got me through the night and this morning I’m doing much better, but feel a little loopy.? Functioning, but dumb.
With that being said, I had to pull in the big guns (my mom) to get another strange family story.? I don’t quite think it beats the Anonymous poster from the previous post, but it’s still a good one.
Here is how the rest of the contest will play out.? We’ll finish up the story round today.? Then tomorrow you, the readers, will get to vote on your favorite.? The trusty husband will pick the people with the best stories from the commenter’s and those people will go up against my whole arsenal of stories.? If you think that any person is better than my whole book of stories that person will be declared stranger than my family and will get a prize from our upcoming vacation.? So stay tuned tomorrow to vote.
The current favorite is the story from Anonymous in the last post (see link above).? The story is long so I won’t put the whole text in this post.? Here is my rebuttal.
Elle: When cousin with 9 kids was 2 or 3 years old her mom (crazy aunt) busted a ukulele across her face.? Then told her she deserved the black eyes.
