    Sister-In-Law: “Congrats! When is it? You can’t do it on our anniversary, okay?”

    Groom’s Sister: “Oh, cool. Don’t steal my birthday!”

    Mom: “Yeah! Did you set a date? Don’t do it on your grandparents’ anniversary!”

    College Buddy: “Congrats, you guys! Don’t take our anniversary, okay? Haha!”

    Cousin: “Congratulations! He’s so cool! Don’t have the wedding during football season, though, or I can’t come.”

    Me: *realizing* “OH, MY GAWSH, NO! I meant the gecko!”

    Ain’t Love Grand?

    | Little Rock, AR, USA | Grandparents

    Grandpa: “How’s work?”

    Me: “Good.”

    A Vicious Cereal Cycle

    Brother: “Yes?”

    Brother: “Depends.”

    Me: “On?”

    Brother: “What do you want to eat?”

    Me: *facepalm*
