While talking to Marie, my sister in the UK, she casually mentioned that she thinks our family is "a bit odd", which I suppose is a lot better than being completely odd. ^_^
We may be odd (what's normal anyway?) but at least we are nice about it. We don't go around claiming our oddness is superior to anyone else's. Add the family still manages to get along, despite our oddness. Some "normal" families can't stand each other, as my sister Jean discovered when she told some co-workers that she enjoyed spending time with her family.
Anyway, I had a nice chat with Marie today, despite the odd comment here and there. Our soapboxes did get a bit high, though. ^_^
