Monday's w/ Michael
Well, I'm typing this Friday evening around 8:00. We leave for Gatlinburg in less than 4 hours. Hopefully, as you are reading this, we are enjoying a wonderful vacation.
One of the highlights of Yergler Family Vacations are the bets. We play games and the loser or losers have to do something. Sometimes, you might have to eat something disgusting (like a skunk flavored jelly belly or a gross flavor of baby food). Sometimes, you might have to do something challenging (like take a shot of Pixie Stix (if you haven't tried it, it's harder than it sounds)). Sometimes, you might have to perform a death-defying stunt (like getting Grandma's hair wet! (this bet is so scary that most family members refuse to play the game when this bet is involved)). Sometimes, you might have to do something embarrassing (like last year when dad had to go to the balcony overlooking the cafeteria at the Farmstead in Shipshewana at breakfast and loudly proclaim "Friends, Romans, countrymen...lend me your ear." Or the time when Grandpa, Steve, Chip and Dad had to sing "God Bless America" outside of the Pancake Pantry in Gatlinburg (people actually asked them where they were going to be performing!)).
Ah, yes, before there was Improv Everywhere, there were Yergler Family Vacations. So, if any of you happen to be in Gatlinburg this week, you may see a scene like one of these below:
