I’m not sure…

…I’ve ever seen my sisters or brother-in-law laugh so hard.  Here’s the background story if you don’t know my mother.  My mother has a severe hearing loss.  I have often described my mother in the following statement: “Have you heard of marches to the tune of a different drummer?  My mother has a whole band.” 

So I’m not exactly sure how it all started but during our big 22-person family barbeque at my house somehow my mother ended up in the playroom playing Rock Band.  Yes.  Rock Band.  I almost don’t need to say another word.  Seriously, I don’t.

Those elicted these:


Look at my brother-in-law in the right-hand corner (and note the looks on my sisters’ faces as they try to figure out what she’s doing):

I almost made it through the whole thing without peeing my pants and then they got my aunt who hardly ever even speaks on the microphone! (Note: there are no kids to be found, just a bunch of adults playing Rock Band)

The final clencher was another aunt who decided that she couldn’t play Rock Band but she could be our back-up dancer.

It makes me wish 22 family members could come over every Friday night.
