Well, dear readers, I’ll tell you.
As some of you may or may not know, Lexi is a lover of all things Poland. She’s actulived there, and is a self-professed “Boleslawiec Polish pottery” collector. Apparently she loves Poland so much that it takes precedence over grave family matters!
The cookie swap was winding to a close. Lexi, Magda, and I were sitting around having a couple of drinks and enjoying the Christmas music playing in the background.
As we were sitting there chatting away, Lexi chimed in, in her usual cheery way, with the following:
“So, my brother got in a car accident…”
Magda and I pretty much halted in our proverbial tracks, taken aback. We exclaimed that we were shocked she hadn’t told us sooner! I mean, that’s not something you just hold back.
“Oh, he’s fine! The car just flipped a few times, and–OH! I love this song! Guys, this Veggie Tales song is amazing! It’s about the Polish foods at Christmas!”
We said we wanted to hear about her brother!
“No no, I’ll tell you after this! This song is so cute!”
For the next three and a half minutes we were entertained with her singing along with Veggie Tales about boiled potatoes with dill weed and pirogies. AFTER the song was over, she completed the tale of her brother’s rather terrifying car crash.
Moral of the story? If you’re a member of Lexi’s family, don’t think you’re going to take precedence over Veggie Tales and Poland, no matter how dire your straits may be.
