My sister will appreciate this

The other night, apete and I got to talking about the weird things that make srahfamily srahfamily. These include things like memorizing musicals, eating blueberry pie and dancing in the kitchen. Playing on our last name, he referred to the state of being a member of my family as "McNautism." I thought this was pretty amusing and I believe I laughed my head off for a while and ran and told my parents.

Then we got to talking about other things and the origin of my last name. "Do you know what the M'Naghten defense is, in the legal system?" I challenged him. I'm always inappropriately proud of this.

He guessed, "Crying?"

Well, it comes close, doesn't it?

We're such a nice, normal family, with absolutely no idiosyncracies (however you spell it). There is nothing wrong with dancing in the kitchen or talking in movie quotes. I bet a lot of families do it. They're just not as open as we are.

I embrace my McNautism!

And my fellow McNautistics!

My mom mostly quotes from Dirty Dancing and my dad prefers "Some Like It Hot" or "The Life of Brian". I mostly quote from TV shows. But we're not so good with musicals.

Eating blueberry pie and dancing in the kitchen hardly make you uniquely McNautian. I eat blueberry pie too. The question is, can you polka in the kitchen?

Tony, do YOU wear plastic bags on your feet?

Ha ha! McN*** Slippers!

Ah yes, we too speak in movie quotes and bust a groove in kitchens (also grocery store aisles, whilst driving in vehicles and any other place you can think of to dance). We count our family uniqueness in our family dinners where outrageous and spirited dialouge reigns with topics such as Haggis as means to repel telemarketers and food is not only to be eaten but also made into puppets that talk.
