Of course I love you. You are the family God has given me.
<i>But, why can't you be like Jack's parents?</i>
Excited for the upcoming holidays. Looking forward to it…
<i>My legitimate excuses are running out. Ugh.</i>
<b>As a Sibling</b>
Why does Alex get everything!
<i>Why does Alex get everything!</i>
<b>As a Friend</b>
We'll always be friends--you and me.
<i>Unless you stab me in the back..
Until you get on my nerves.</i>
...and I'll be there for you, always.
<i>As long as I'm not busy.
Fridays are out. Mondays, too.
Other than that...I'm there for you.</i>
So, call on me, day or night.
<i>Talk to my voice mail. I'll call you back when it's convenient for ME. Oh yea. Got your latest message. Why were you crying, anyway?</i>
<b>As a Spouse</b>
I promise to love, honor and protect you.
<i>Unless someone better comes along or until I get bored of you.</i> (Also valid under 'employment')
...and I will never hurt you.
<i>So long as things go my way.</i>
I vow to always talk things through.
<i>But, if you say something I don't agree with, I WILL hang up or walk out…</i>
<b>As a Parent</b>
I love you all equally.
<i>Except Johnny. He frustrates me.</i>
I just want what's best for you.
<i>...and that is for you to get out. You're eighteen. My job's done.</i>
<i>You're almost Eighteen. It's ALMOST time to get out.</i>
Speaking of jobs-
<b>As an Employee</b>
You can count on me!
<i>As long as I get a raise or my performance is somehow recognized.</i>
Sure, I'm a team player.
<i>That is, if I can select my team. Let me tell you, it wouldn't consist of Sam, Lisa or Eddie.</i>
You want me to do what?
<i>Why do I have to do it? I did it LAST week. Let Sam do it.</i>
<b>As a Neighbor</b>
Could you look after my pets for me while I'm away?
<i>You know, do something constructive besides blowing your leaves in my yard.</i>
<b>As a Christian</b>
I don't get it, Lord. People are all about themselves. No one does anything out of love or consideration for others. Seriously, what's wrong with people these days?
