I got a t-shirt that says rambler on it for Christmas. I’d wear it every time I rambled, but I don’t want to wear the thing five days a week.
Ramble of the Day
Christmas day can be an adventure for many; in my family, it meant first finding out we didn’t have wifi, then making a mess opening presents, followed by tea spilling all over a tablecloth, a nail cutter going missing, the nail cutter being found in the washing machine with the tablecloth, and then later finding a plastic fork and knife in said washing machine. Other people have less chaotic stories, but sagas that oversee a great battle. The following is the beginning of that story.
Make or break for my mum this year in the kitchen. Sister lowkey overtaking her this. Same energy: pic.twitter.com/AWsUDdxh6K— HE COPIED MY WHOLE FUCKIN FLOW!!! (@Bxerto) December 25, 2019
It’s a tweet thread, with a football/mother and daughter Christmas story that would make for a terrific Christmas film. (Netflix should option the rights.) I’m obviously not going to copy and paste all the tweets, but it’s a lot of fun — there’s a reference to Gareth Bale and a VAR moment; it’s a classic power struggle told through a new lens.
tl;dr: Just read the tweet thread.
