Thanksgiving quotes

Favorite quotes from Thanksgiving spent with my family:
“Jo, don’t listen to him. He doesn’t know what he’s saying. Remember, the dictionary came to Mangilao before Yona. And that guy’s from Yona.”
“Hafa? Go over there and sit next to your wife! It’s not good to stay too long with your father-in-law.”
“I’m going home to see my baby boy.”
Chelu (buddy), your wife has a baby boy. YOU have a son.”
“Josie, I heard you went to the ranch today to see your Dad.”
“I did! And I didn’t get any red dirt on me!”
“That’s because you’re a professional.
“I had a lady in my ambulance who was ready to give birth to her ninth kid. She’s only 27! I said to her, ‘Ma’am, didn’t you learn by the time you had your seventh?”
“Well, maybe she wants to have a lot of children.”
“That’s not what I meant. By now she should know from the twitches and pains when it’s time to go to the hospital. Lady, don’t call ME for a ride after eight babies.”
“Boy, don’t listen to your father-in-law when he tells you about life. When the dictionary came to Mangilao, your father-in-law wasn’t home.”
“And if I had stayed any longer, I would’ve played darts!”
Prima (cousin), stay away from darts at the ranch. That’s how you get into real trouble.”
“Try this! It’s freshwater eel. You know it’s from the south because they don’t got no freshwater rivers in the north. Or ANY rivers.”
“You’re breastfeeding your boy? Don’t eat anything pika (hot) and DON’T SMOKE. If you do he’s not going to grow up to be a GOOD SHORTSTOP.”

(Is it just me, or does today’s post read like outtakes from an episode of King of the Hill?)
