Every family has a different way of welcoming people home after they have been away. Some have a party, some exchange gifts, and some just say welcome back and go on with their lives. However, no two families do it the same way, (well actually some probably do, but let’s forget about them).
I have been on many trips away from home: some were long and some were short, but my family always seems to have the same reaction despite the length of the trip. Allow me to give you the statistics:
50%: “Oh my, did they feed you in [Insert Trip Destination]? You’ve lost so much weight.” (Usually when I don’t lose any weight).
15%: “You know when I went to [Insert Trip Destination], I…[Insert Long Story Irrelevant to My Travels]”
10%: “Oh my, your [Insert Relative From The 50%] told me you lost weight! Are you sure they fed you?”
10%: “Great now that your back you can help me with something.” (While I’m falling asleep from jetlag).
9%: “Did you get me a souvenir?”
5%: “Did you go somewhere? I thought you were just hiding in your room.”
1%: “Welcome back! How was your trip? Tell me all about it!” (Usually my grandma)
So as you can see my family is very interested in my travels…well at least in my eating habits, but isn’t that what family is for?
So dear readers, I open it up to you, how does your family welcome you home?
