Today I received a phone call from my Dad.
Son: Hey Dad.
Father: Your Uncle's in jail.
In my family certain things are not shocking. One of them is a teenage relative getting pregnant. Another is my Uncle Dave going to jail.
Father: He got caught with some of his pills and stuff.
My Uncle Dave has in the past led police on a high speed chase, assaulted five state troopers and ran a counterfeit food stamp business. Not to mention a couple DUI's. So for him this might be progress.
Father: Your Uncle Dan is gonna go bail him out tomorrow.
I wish I had a brother like Uncle Dan. Everytime Uncle Dave has gotten into trouble his brother Dan has been there to save his ass. Everytime I get into trouble my sisters can't wait to tell my mom how much it is her fault for being so nice to me. My sisters think I am the golden child. The truth is my Mom loves me more because I am the best looking.
Father: What the fuck happenend to the birds?
Son: I don't wanna talk about it.
Father:Yeah. I know. Keep bustin guts, love ya.
Son: Love you too.
