The Crazy Folk

We all have our crazy relative stories. Ask any member of my family, and hands down we all pick the same person as "The Crazy" in the family. While spending our 90th hour in the hospital waiting room with a flood of Kenny's relatives, I was introduced to Kenny's crazy folk. She, my friends, takes the cake on nuttiest relative. While her behavior at the hospital was quite strange, it is the story of three Christmases ago that moved her into first place.

After the whole everyone buy everyone a gift thing was getting way out of control, it was decided that the family would do a gift exchange. Wrap it, throw it in a pile, and take turns picking and then stealing gifts. We have all played this game, and I am going to say, the neighborhood ornament exchange last year got quite brutal. I almost lost a hand, but that is another story. Kenny's sister received the first gift from Crazy. She unwrapps the box to discover Glow In The Dark Sex Lotion! Now, I must explain, Crazy works at a Cindie's. If you don't know what that is, go look it up. Perhaps, if she weren't sitting next to her fiance this might not be quite as embarassing. Or perhaps if she were at a lingerie party this would be appropriate. But this isn't even the best part of the story.

Kenny's grandpa is this sweet little man. Poor unsuspecting Grandpa gets the next gift. Wrapping paper slowly peels back. Confused look crossing Grandpa's face. He turns the box over in his hands. Then holds it up for all to see. Grandpa is now the proud owner of...uhhumm..a VIBRATOR!
