Anyone Want Some Expired Benadryl?

So when my Sis and I were home in NY last weekend, we kinda had some fun at my parents' expense.

You see, their house (our childhood home) is a mecca of STUFF.

Not on the level of needing a Hoarders intervention, by any means.

I'm just saying that a visit from Niecy Nash could be beneficial. 

And so...

My Sis and I played the *Let's Laugh At The Stuff in Mom and Dad's House Game*.

(C'mon kids, play along!)

(Hey, the damn half marathon didn't start until 1pm. We were antsy.)

To start, we raided the medicine cabinet.
That's my Sis's BINGO! face.

Oh look, a prescription.  From 1997!

Children's Benadryl.  That expired in MAY OF '99. 
(Related:  NO WONDER why the boyz slept so well that night...)

Heh.  I'm only kidding.

And finally, we have this:

It rubs the lotion on its skin. It does this whenever it is told...

But wait!  There's more!

Here's a sneak peek at what other "interesting" things we found when we played the *Let's Laugh At The Stuff in Mom and Dad's House Game*:

Not an optical illusion.  That's a  phone book.  From 2007.  Seriously.  Sitting in a place of prominence on top of the FIRST GENERATION microwave (that still works).

And then there's this coffee mug that has been around for as long as I can remember.  As kids, we of course didn't "get it".  Now I think it's fricking hilarious.

Stay tuned, though.  Coming up next...

I think I have that exact same Benadryl in my medicine cabinet. What can I say... it was a good year.

You guys are so evil but this? Is hilareeeous.
I wonder what kind of gems are in the basement....muwhahahaha
PS. Are they saving those prescription bottles for a rainy day? Or for a good time? Are they preparing for the apocolypse and in the event that there should be no more Benadryl, they will be the only ones with some?
Old people are funny.

Hilarious!! The prescription thing is soooo my parents!

So my parents are actually in the purging stage of their lives. I think they are in the early stages of preparing for their retirement - getting ready for that Beach Condo. Anyway instead of just throwing all the useless junk out they are passing it on to me and my siblings. For example, last year they brought me a set of ceramic figurines that I had painted when I was like 9 - going through my artistic stage- because they thought I would want them. Ummm that was a big NO.
Beware when the purging happens...

Yep, my parents too have a border-hoarder-home, and they are so picky about what to throw out. Every once in a while I'll quick shove a bunch of moldy magazines in the garbage, but it would come to blows if they caught me! The garage is the scariest thing! They need a shovel, hazmat suit, and a large dumpster.

ok knowing both of your parents I want to know who's mug it is????

Bwahahahaha!! Okay, I so wish I could've hung out with you guys. That is seriously my kind of good times, and I would've laughed until I peed. For reals, dude. Especially at the lotion....where is that from? An airport bathroom ending machine??

You crack my ass up.
