McCormick Family Reunion

His eyes were green but no one noticed Even though he was the only green-eye in the room. His hair was red, but so were all of ours We are McCormicks so it makes sense right? The thing we were all noticing was his beard The base appeared to be popsicle sticks and globs of glue. Is it hard? Someone asked. He nodded furiously. Is it a contest? Another relative interjected. His brother came in wearing a similar beard But with Barbie and Ken dolls glued on it Their heads going in different directions. Weird and weirder I thought. Until their mother came in. She had the ultimate beard. She had interwoven a skull And put in blinking eyes. Since it was not my family reunion I kept my mouth shut Especially as my girlfriend Was irritated now She thought she was going to win with orange witch beard with the hissing black cat.

Oh my, maybe you can forego that reunion next year. Is your girlfriend always a weirdo or just when she's around family??? Family can do that to you, of course.

They are all weirdos if they still talk to me.
