Gypsy update

So, the Gypsies were quite fun. The graveside service was postponed so that more beer could be purchased and more weed could be smoked. The service itself was nice (highlight: a three year old flipped off another child that was annoying her), and afterward wine was shared and the funeral directors were all made honorary Gypsies, and one of the funeral goers taught us all how to pick a pocket. After the casket went into the ground they threw money in on top of the casket, and the coins were loud when they hit the bottom. It really was a nice service, and the Gypsies seemed pleased with everything, which is good because I have a feeling they aren’t the types of folks one wants to make angry…

What'd I say?

I can remember one of biggest threats a relative could make was, "If you don't behave, we're gonna give you back to the gypsies!"


Hmmmmm. maybe that explains something?

That's threats made to a kid. Another was to give him back to the Indians.

I'm a fairly new reader - I came along right before the gypsies did, actually. What a fascinating line of work! I'm guessing this is a story you won't be forgetting.
