Perpetual Commotion

Last year for Christmas, my family got a game called "Perpetual Commotion." It came with eight or so colorful card decks and is basically the result of someone monetizing off of Nerts, a card game that I've been kind of obsessed with ever since I learned how to play it last year. Because my parents are anti-face cards, but pro-me, they got Perpetual Commotion so we could still play without them feeling like bad parents.

But I'm not really here to talk about the game. I really just want to talk about my family. "Perpetual Commotion" is much more than just a game. It is also a phrase that perfectly describes the atmosphere that exists in my house.

There are seven kids in my family, making nine people total, and everyone has a very distinct personality. On our own, we are unique. Put us together, and we feed off of each other's enthusiasm to the point that you can practically feel the energy buzz through you as you enter our house. Tonight, hanging out with these siblings who are my best friends, I felt a little bit like I was being dunked repeatedly in champagne. Playing a game called "Perpetual Commotion" could only have added to this. The mood was high, the laughing was constant, and the sense of camaraderie was strong. There were so many outbursts that at times I was laughing so hard I couldn't even see straight.

I hope everyone loves their family as much as I love mine, although I highly doubt it. Everything they do, I find positively hilarious. Here are some highlights from the day:

"Glied;'onoqeinrog 3ni4 uqdj ao'!" ".....What, Julie?" "I said, I needed that!"

"Give me a yellow two or DIE!" ~Nicole
