We're camping with friends and there are 14 of us total. We've been noticing a strange phenomenon. A camper pulled up at the site adjacent to ours. The people got out of their RV, saw all of us, promptly got back in their vehicle and drove off.
Another camper pulled up, the folks got out, plugged their camper into the electrical outlet, then quickly disappeared inside, not to be seen again.
When we went to the pool this afternoon, within 15 minutes, the entire place was empty except for us. Not another soul in sight.
Do you think it has anything to do with the fact that we've got 10 kids running around like howler monkeys hopped up on caffeine and crack?
ME: Are you sure the kids can eat those? Where did you find them? How do you know what kind of berries they are?
JOE: They're boysenberries.
ME: Since when do you know what boysenberries are?
JOE: I just know.
ME: Oh give me a break. You just find some berries growing along the lake and you start eating them without knowing what they are?
JOE: I told you - they're mulberries!
ME: You said they were boysenberries! Now they're mulberries?
JOE: Yes, they're huckleberries.
ME: Admit that you're clueless.
JOE: I am not clueless. I'm an Eagle Scout!
ME: Do Eagle Scouts usually pour lighter fluid on the fire to get it going?
Yes, camping brings out the best in us.
Now I'm off to sit around the campfire with Andy and make some hot delicious schmoes!
