The Heck family - Mike, Frankie, Brick, Axl, Sue
Once again The Middle television show is about something in our family, this week specifically The Christmas Letter.
Brick: Hey we got Christmas cards in the mail. One of them has a letter. Its all about the Kirkwoods and their doings and goings on. Who are these people?
Mike: Just someone I went to high school with.
Brick: And he thought he should share the details of his life with you?
Frankie: It's a Christmas Letter. People update you on their lives. It's a way to keep in touch.
Brick: So we have gotten more of these?
Frankie: Yeah, I usually throw them out.
Brick: Why? They are fascinating!
So Brick decides to do a Heck family Christmas letter.
Brick: Mom doesn't wear pants anymore. Finances weigh heavy on our minds. The kitchen sink fell through the counter last month and now we wash dishes in the shower. Axl's football career seems to be over as he dropped the ball both literally and figuratively. Mom and Dad stay up late worrying about Sue doing something with Darren called Losing It.
Mike: Whoa! Brick, you can't say any of that stuff!
Brick: Why not? It's all true.
Mike: Christmas letters are just for the good things that happened in the last year!
Brick: Oh. Well that's going to be a lot harder… and shorter.
So we are waiting to see what
Madison comes up with, and Grandpa Buddy too. I wonder if our letters are fascinating or if they get thrown out? :)
At least we don't wash dishes in the shower, but if we did it probably would make the Christmas letter.
