Weird Holidays – May 18, 2009

Today is INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM DAY. It’s also VISIT YOUR RELATIVES DAY. ***MARLAR: So you can kill two birds with one stone by going to a museum and visiting your mummy.

Whenever I go back home to visit relatives, I begin working on my exits a bit early in order to be prepared…
o I can’t stay, I have secret government work to finish.  I could tell you about it, but then I’d have to kill you.
o Time for us to leave – if I miss “24” I’m completely lost the rest of the season.
o What was in that gravy?  I forgot to mention that I’ve developed an allergy to milk and flour and whatever else was in that gravy.  Gotta run to the hospital!
o Gotta go – the cat has to be let out of the house every two hours, and she’s still back in Illinois.  It’s a hassle, but what can you do?
o Oh look, I’ve spilled diet A&W on my brand new shirt.  I really should take this home and put Oxi-Clean on it immediately.
o Honey, did we leave the oven on back in Illinois?  I thought so.
o Well, we’re going to call it a night.  We don’t want to overdo it, after all, we’re likely going to see you again on Christmas, anyway.
