Messing With Milton Goldstein
My parents are trying to get rid of stuff in their house and at a seemingly constant pace my dad, Milton, texts us pics of items to see if my siblings and I want them. So sometimes I mess with him.
- •My dad sends a text about blank DVDs.
- •My brother and sister respond accordingly. But I see an opportunity...List note: My parents don't seem to get sarcasm. Ever.
- •Even though I know they never get sarcasm, I really thought after this text they would get I was joking…
- •But my dad responds with an additional picture to explain what he's talking about…
- •Now my brother gets in on the game
- •I call my brother. "How does Daddy not get I'm joking?"
- •So I send another text in response to his pic to see how long I can keep this going.
- •Finally he gets it.List Note: The one item I do want is the old film projector so I can watch our old 8mm family movies... And of course make a List about it.
