‘member that time?

Standard

‘member that time when bryan [my husband bryan, if the last post confused you] nicknamed me “sammy” in high school and i knew we were finally friends because i had a nickname from him?

‘member how i made him and the other brian a pie once and he named me “pie master sammy” otherwise known as p.m.s.? ‘member how he called me pms for like two years until a certain someone slapped him and told him not to call me that anymore?

‘member how bryan then started calling me lisagrace and i was all like, whoa, he totally likes me now and then he asked me out like a month later?

if you want your girlfriend to know you like her, i wouldn’t recommend calling her pms under any circumstances.

happy anniversary month to me!

‘member that time when i decided i wanted to switch to gmail, because of it’s awesomeness and betterness than yahoo and whatnot? ‘member how i had been dating bryan for about 9 months and decided, well hey, we’re probably getting married, so why don’t i just make this thing permanent? so ‘member how i created a gmail account for lisagracealsbury @ gmail.com without actually knowing that i was for sure going to marry bryan, because it’s not like we’d talked about it or anything?

yeah, i’m glad that worked out for me.

happy anniversary month to me!

‘member that time when i bossed my littlest brother adam around all the time, but i gave him money to compensate him for his troubles? ‘member how i would send him on all sorts of errands for me, be it running to get me a candy bar from char’s, the neighborhood gas station, or simply a glass of ice water from upstairs, meanwhile i would just dole out the washingtons like a queen?

‘member how at the height of my laziness, as i was lounging on the couch, i asked adam to go to the bathroom for me, because i just couldn’t get up to go?

well, he obviously couldn’t serve me to that level [without a catheter], but he was still such a good brother.

ps: happy 19th birthday to my baby brother adam two days ago!

‘member that time when me and my two older brothers, luke and levi, were riding home from char’s with our most recent candy purchases?

‘member how luke was all like, lisagrace, there is a guy chasing us, so you better start riding faster? ‘member how i was all like, whatever, you’re so stupid! and he was all like, i’m serious! and then i looked behind me only to see a shady-lookin’ white guy running after us?

‘member how luke was so heroic by slowing down to ride behind me so i’d be safe, and levi led us safely through the shortcut through the backyards of some houses and the shady guy stopped running after us then?

my big brothers may have beat me up a lot, but they loved me all the same.

ps: happy 26th birthday to luke in three days!

‘member that afternoon when i was really, really cranky so my mom sent me to take a nap even though i was like seven? and ‘member how i completely agreed with her, but as i was trying to fall asleep, every one else in was in the kitchen having the time of their lives while i was unfairly stuck in my room to take a nap?

‘member how i decided the best thing to do was to send them a message telling them of my struggle to fall asleep as they were having such fun?

‘member how i literally “sent them a message” via paper airplane? but ‘member how i was awful at making paper airplanes, so mine only flew like two feet and didn’t get anywhere near them? ‘member how no one even noticed that i was out of my room and trying desperately to send them a paper airplane so i started waving and making noises and stuff but they still didn’t notice me?

‘member how i was now also infuriated by the fact that they didn’t notice me that i made a sign that said,

sign

and ‘member i cleared my throat real loud so everyone in the kitchen noticed me and i pointed to the sign i had placed on the ledge but everyone just looked at me all confused and such and so i read the sign out loud in my nastiest of voices and marched back up the stairs to my room and took a nap?

yeah, my mom was right, i did need a nap.

‘member that time when i decided i wanted to be truly evil? ‘member how i decided that the most evil thing i could do was to trick my brother mark into getting in trouble?

so ‘member how i took him to the basement and handed him scissors and told him to cut my dress? it took some convincing but ‘member how i finally got him to cut through about an inch of the hem of my dress and then i immediately ran up the stairs to my mom and yelled, “mark cut my dress!?”

she believed my brother and i got in trouble.

dang it.

ps: happy 21st birthday to mark in three days!

‘member that time when my baby sister was born on my six and halfth birthday? and i was just so excited to finally have a sister?

‘member how my grandma was all like, hey lisagrace, let’s get some new clothes for your sister at target, could you help me find it? and i was all like, yeah, i’m six and a half, i can give good directions to target.

‘member how i knew where the first turn was, but i just could not figure out where the second turn was and i kept telling my grandma to turn right one block too early? ‘member how we went in like six circles before my grandma just stopped at a gas station and asked where it was and the dude was all like, yeah, it’s just like a block over.

and now when i’m lost, i always go further then i think i should.

‘member that one day when my big brother levi was left in charge of us for a while? ‘member how i was being incredibly annoying while he was washing the floor? ‘member how i kept singing [and managed to get my brother mark on board too] my own little parody to an amy grant twila paris song [as corrected by my mother] where i repeated over and over in a sing-song voice: “god is innnnn control! not leviiiiiiii!” ‘member how i sang it so much and taunted him about bossing me around that eventually i got him to crack and he ran after me, tackled me to the ground and started jumping on me in a rage fit for an eleven year old?

and ‘member how he ended up spraining my wrist and my parents made him pay for the doctor’s bill?

yeah, i was a horrible little sister sometimes.

‘member that time when my family re-wrote that one famous car-x song? you know, the one where it’s all like, “rumble, rumble, clatter, clatter, piece of crap caaaaarrrrr? don’t worry, call the car-x man!” [those aren’t the exact lyrics, but you get the idea]

well, anyway, ‘member how we thought we were really clever to substitute the lyrics for our names? and ‘member how we had the perfect amount of syllables between all of our names, that it was almost as if my parents planned it that way?

for those of you who know the song i’m talking about, here’s the von duvick family version:

rolf, ami, luke and levi, lisagrace toooooo…..mark, adam and alyssa joy!

pretty amazing stuff.
