Happy Birthday Neal

Blazey and I traveled down to Cincinnati to spend some time with our good friend Aileen's parents this past weekend (Q is in Australia). Mom had a little birthday celebration for her brother Neal who died almost a year ago. A bunch of Neal and Aileen's friends came out to eat up mom's Filipino dishes and send off messages in balloons. OH, so for the past 4 or 5 years (since the day i met Mrs Aquino) she's tried to get me to eat pork. Well she finally succeeded with a little trickery. She told blazey and I that she made everything pork free for me this weekend. I start eating this amazing broccoli salad with turkey bacon and comment on how good it is and mention something about the bacon being turkey. She then says, "yeah, you don't eat pork that's why i told you it was turkey bacon". But she told it so dry that i didn't know if she was joking or not. I take a look at the fatty bacon on my plate and can't help but start cracking up.
