If nothing else, holidays are a good time to catch up on what everyone’s doing.
My oldest son has a cool new job – he’s temporarily the traffic manager for Wizards of the Coast and is responsible for shipments of Pokemon cards. So if your store doesn’t get theirs, it’s his fault.
Another works for a large northwestern city and is STILL doing Y2K testing on programs that residents have been told were compliant. Why am I not surprised?
Hubby’s youngest step-son (20) who just lost his third job in three years is going to be a father.
My mom’s teeth are falling out – probably a side effect of tons of medication she’s taking, or maybe osteoporosis. She’s lost four in the last few months.
My brother never bothered to put water treatment stuff in his waterbed from several years ago. Now he has a small leak and it stinks so bad, he’s sleeping on the couch til he can get it drained.
The company my youngest son works for had something like $400,000 in fines for safety violations. The inspection came after someone lost a hand in a press, and a woman got her arm caught in a machine that didn’t have a reversing mechanism. They had to sedate her and keep the machine running to get her arm out.
What did you guys talk about at your family gatherings?
