Entertainment Committee of One

She gripes, grumbles and grouses. We smile, smirk and sneak glances at each other. Thrilled she comes to every family reunion. Loudly and proudly grimacing and griping. My uncles love to rile her up, arguing and sassing her. She is my favorite participant by far. Things never get lively until she arrives. Giving us someone to use as a reference. I imagine when she dies we will all go to her funeral Sharing innumerable stories giving her buckets of praise for making these tedious reunions tolerable. Entertainment committee of one.

One in every family, I suspect. And they are loved, I think.
