Nothing says "Memorial Day" like having an argument with you mother over the fact that you grew up thinking Memorial Day was called "Decoration Day" and meant nothing more than decorating old graves of relatives you didn't know. I asked my mom why it was never mentioned in our home that in fact Memorial Day was created after the Civil War to HONOR fallen MILITARY soldiers. She was basically "whatevs."
Memorial Day should always involve ice cream:
We played a rousing game of "Catch Phrase" but split up the teams of boyz vs girlz. I had Tim and Zach on my team, and nearly leapt across the coffee table to strangle Tim who had the clue "Leave it to Beaver" and just kept yelling "weaver!" for which I naturally started thinking about "rug weavers, knitters, crocheters?" WTF. I like having Erica and Chris on my team.
How was your Memorial Day celebration?
