I know I haven't been as active on the blog lately, but this week my parents are in town and so between working half days and spending the afternoons and evenings with my parents I haven't had much time to pay attention to the internet.
After I thought my father might have found our podcast I was joking with the Herd that they might decide to perform an exorcism intervention. I was sort of serious. I don't know if they'd actually do something that formal, but I could see them grabbing onto me and praying over me in tongues. It's a bit scary to think about and even scarier is th the idea that at one time in my life that was normal behavior.
My brother was going on about Mike Warnke earlier that day and talking about how Warnke had done amazing things as a Satanist like bringing people back from the dead. Yeah, because he told you he did it? Of course I piped in that he had been exposed as a fraud, but I don't know if anyone believed me. But it did make my brother pause and think.
Last night I took my family to a bar for dinner. Well, my mom did say she wanted a good burger and so I took them out for the best burgers in town. Yeah, I didn't even consciously think about it until we got there and heard the dance music loud in the background. Oh well, it was an adventure for them, I'm sure. Tonight will be safe because it's good ol' Kansas City barbeque.
Anyway, I'm off to enjoy the good things about my family. I'm not sure what we'll do today. The only thing to expect is that it'll be unexpected. Disaster will likely strike in some way. The car will get a flat tire. Or my brother will fall down the stairs. Or maybe it'll just end up being a pleasant day.
*My family never looked that normal.
