Awkward + Awesome: The Chunky Milk Christmas Edition


We're still talking about Christmas, right?
Okay good.

Here is another edition of awkward & awesome,
brought to you by the 2013 Christmas season.
* * *

So, every year my immediate family (mom, dad, jordan, me, 2 brothers, and 1 sister) exchanges names for a secret santa. For the past few years we've used a group message on Facebook to send out gift ideas. Here are a few notable parts of the message thread. I feel like all of the following fits under both awkward and awesome, but I guess I'll let you decide. There's a slight chance than none of you will think these are as funny as I did, but there's also a slight chance I don't care.

We were with Jordan's family, and I set up the tripod so we could all take a picture together in front of the tree.

You might say I misjudged the self-timer...

On Christmas Eve, my family played a round of Farkle for a $5 gift card.
My brother opened up a Starbucks sleeve to find $5 in breakfast coupons.
Let's just say my dad thinks he's hilarious with his jokes, and my brother was not amused that his $5 prize involved him spending money.

Apparently the milk had gone bad. Like, really bad. Chunky bad.
My dad noticed immediately and spit out his drink.
This was AFTER my brother drank an entire glass.
His words: "I thought it tasted weird!"
Apparently he was too busy dipping his cookies in the milk that he failed to notice the chunks. What a sucker.

The "optional gift wrapping" for my brother's sleeping bag was definitely a huge Santa bag.
Most certainly worth the extra 5 dollars.

Finally, I will leave you with some of our attempted tripod shots on Christmas morning.
It was a good day.


Oh, and yes, my brother is holding an axe.

I love comments more than cupcakes. So, basically a lot. I respond to all comments via email and also occasionally in the post thread if you are asking a question that other readers might be interested in.
