Is your family silly? Mine definitely is. My Dad played all sorts of games with my sisters and I growing up and my sisters and I are constantly silly with each other. (My middle sister and I love The Office. While driving down the road one day we decided that since we are both right handed that our right hands are the Regional Managers while our left hands are the Assistants to the Regional Manager. We thought we were hilarious.)
I got a good dose of silliness with my youngest sister and her husband while I was in Utah for graduation. After commencement my parents, sister, her husband, and I all went out for dinner. Her husband very decidedly out-ate everyone else at the table. So it was declared that he "won dinner". To celebrate winning he stood up on his chair, in the middle of the restaurant, and raised his arm in victory.
The following day we went out to lunch again and his winning streak continued. He again out-ate everyone at the table. This time he fashioned himself a medal to wear while striking his winning pose. The medal is a metal lid cover and the chain is made from our empty straw wrappers tied together. I might have helped in the making of this silliness.
When we realized that he apparently ate part of his fork in his zeal to win lunch I laughed so hard there were tears.
After lunch we had to go straight to the school for the convocation (where the graduates actually walked across the stage) so I stashed the medal in my purse for safe keeping. After convocation though I was leaving with my other brother-in-law and his wife to spend some time with them. I tried to do a sneaky getaway with the medal but he chased me down. (Yes, there were quite a few confused stares from strangers.)
It makes me happy that time spent with my family involves lots of silliness and laughing. I'd love to hear if your family is silly too.
