Favorite of the week

This is my favorite conversation I've had over the last week or so. Over the weekend, Frank's friend John came up to the farm,along with John's nephew. Kent was there too with his friend Steve and his family. So the camper was quite full when I finally got there. This is my conversation with Frank right after I got there and walked over to him:

Frank: How you doin?
Me: (laughing) fine, thanks. How are you?
Frank: I'm being brain-washed by the one channel we get that plays Friends re-runs all the time.
Me: Oh? Well, then...
Frank: So, as Joey would say, "how you doin?"

At this point, I'm laughing so hard on the inside that I have to walk away. I smiled and agreed that the Friends re-runs must be hard for him. However, I never thought I would hear my father-in-law pull a Joey line on me...somethings are worth the experience. I'm not sure if he was delirious because there were so many people in such a small place, or if he was, in fact, being brain-washed. I may never know.
