I have a very small family. Other than my mom, I have an aunt and a couple of cousins and that’s it. Our holiday get togethers are kind of a random mixture of friends and family and no longer really tradition oriented. So this story really could have happened on a regular day and it still would have been funny. However, since it happened on Thanksgiving, it’s even funnier.
A few years back my cousin Diane had Thanksgiving at her house. There were about 15 people there that day and we had quite a nice dinner. After the dinner was over some guests were resting on the couch while others helped clean up the mess. When most of the cleaning was finished all that remained in the kitchen were my cousin Diane and my aunt (Diane’s mom). They dried dishes and put them away.
Let me give you some pertinent background information about my cousin and my aunt. They pee when they laugh too hard. That’s right. If they get to laughing a lot, they have an “accident”. As far back as I can remember, combined they have probably peed their pants about 8 times. Which, to me, is a lot to pee your pants as an adult.
While Diane and my Aunt Kathy were doing the dishes, Diane bent down to one of the cupboards below the counter to put something away. While down there, my aunt accidentally whacked her in the head with a pot. The sound of the pot hitting her head made a “Bonnnggg” sound. Diane was ok in the sense that she wasn’t hurt, but she sat down on the kitchen floor and burst into laughter. The rest of us who heard the ringing also started laughing once we realized she was ok. That made Diane laugh harder, and that made Diane pee right there on the kitchen floor. If that weren’t bad enough, Diane peeing on the kitchen floor made the rest of laugh, including her mom, my Aunt Kathy. Who then peed on the kitchen floor as well.
Those of witnessing all this peeing were quite surprised. We had seen this behavior from each of them individually, but never as a duo. Everyone moved out of the kitchen area quite quickly so we didn’t have to be involved in the clean up. We were thankful that we had already had dinner as none of us would have wanted to eat a Thanksgiving dinner after there had been pee on the kitchen floor. Surprisingly enough, we haven’t had Thanksgiving at Diane’s house since then.
Happy Turkey Day everyone!
