Fun at Family Time

Family is sacred at the Estate. Once a week, each and every week, we take off our backpacks and spend a couple hours getting lost in community. The conversations that fly above chopped onion and minced garlic often follow a routine small-talk sort of flight pattern, but at times they venture into the closet. That's what happened a couple weeks ago, listen:

Alimo: When you guys get married ...


... are you going to do it?

[Pause] we were confused and waited for more clarification.

Alimo: Somewhere special?

[Pause] This kind of comment, with its more erotic connotation, is unusual for Alimo to make.

Alimo: I was just talking to my friend and she ...

Aliali: Wait, what are you talking about?

Alimo: ... and she just got married in Hawaii.

Aliali: Wow, easy now.

Jonahmed: Oh, do you mean, "would we get married in a special place?"

Alimo: Yeah, what did you think I meant?
