My family is so cool. I like that they can do tail-gate parties and black tie events.
I especially like when they do both at the same time; witness the parking lot before Joe and Kristin’s wedding.
It’s not really about the hummus and olives and specialty beer in cans is it? It’s about bonding and hanging out and being one unit before you go into the fray to become part of a bigger unit. It’s like home-room in high school, only with better beer, and you actually want to be there.
Families are sometimes underrated.
And sometimes overrated.
