It’s been one of those weeks…… Enough said….. and just because I needed a laugh, I decided to post yet another rerun. The following was posted back in April 2013 – but it still makes me laugh….
“Please allow me to introduce…..”
DC loves to make introductions. I don’t believe he really understands the point of introducing people. He notices people making introductions in the movies he watches and in the books that he reads. It doesn’t matter if the people he is introducing already know each other. It doesn’t matter if he knows they already know each other, when he gets to urge to make introductions, he does. He is usually very formal about it as well – “I would like to introduce my mother, Vickie Lastname” or “It is my pleasure to introduce to you, my mother, Vickie Lastname“ or (my favorite) “Please allow me to introduce my ‘lov-er-ly’ mother, Vickie Lastname“ Recently we attended a pasta dinner fundraiser to benefit the summer camp DC has attended since he was 5 years old. We purchased enough tickets for DC, Doug, my mother and myself and we sold a few more to friends and family members. Seated with DC and I were, – My mother (DC’s grandmother) – Doug (who was also pulling DJ duty) – DC’s grandparents on his Dad’s side – DC’s Dad – Tracy – DC’s stepmother (His Dad’s wife. I generally do not use the stepmother title to describe her because DC is so very much into Disney that there is no explaining to him that all stepmothers are not evil) Karr-ee-anna – in DC-speak -DC’s Aunt K -Her husband R – My friend Tonya – and DC’s friend, Salli Due to the crowd, Doug’s father and sister had moved over to the next table. DC was very excited that everyone was there at the same time. He sat at the table as if he were “holding court”. He then decided that introductions were in order. Turning his attention to his father, Tracy: “Tracy, this is my mother Vickie Lastname” and “Vickie, I would like to introduce you to my father, Tracy (same) Lastname” ~ Insert Dramatic Pause ~ Me: “Um……. “we’ve met……………………..”
