Picking on Even Steven

By  | 

Picking on Even Steven is so much fun – and I’m not the only one that enjoys it.


My family does too.

My Dad

After meeting my parents for the first time, Even Steven said to me,

Wow. Your parents are so great – I want to do something really nice for them. Like clean all those bugs out of the light in their kitchen.

The next time Even Steven visited my parent’s house, my dad greeted him with a stepladder, paper towels and cleaning spray – to get those bugs out of the kitchen light.


My Brother

You already know that Even Steven is terrified of sharks. Well, my brother is a shark researcher – and a little bit of a big deal.

On one of our trips to Hawaii to visit him, my brother took us to a beach and assured Even Steven that there weren’t any sharks to worry about.

Even Steven enjoyed a carefree day swimming in the ocean.

When we arrived home, my brother mailed Even Steven a map that outlined the numerous shark sightings and attacks that had taken place at that same beach.


My Mom

Several years ago, Even Steven and I were visiting my parents. While watching television together, a commercial came on for the Gazelle. Remember this?


Even Steven: Who on earth would buy such a stupid thing? I mean, seriously, what a joke!

He continued on a fairly long rant about everything that was wrong with the Gazelle.

A few minutes later, my mom asked Even Steven to please grab her a bag of onions from the basement.

Guess where she had placed the onions?

That’s right – on her Gazelle.

    hahahahaha! I love your parents! So jealous that your brother is a shark researcher- that would be my dream job for a brother if I had one! I am a shark fan to the max.
    Every time I see this picture of Steven, I think of the waxing in the car story! Thanks for a hearty laugh this morning, Anna!

    I am so stupid, I was holding my coffee while scrolling down on the computer, I have learned to not drink it, now I need to not hold it. Jeez Anna, you almost made me spill my entire coffee on my computer. My hand was shaking from my laughter…love the pic of him on the gazelle…and the shark sighting thing…that was awesome.

    If I had your mailing address I SWEAR I would go there with a camera crew, carrying a HUGE bouquet of balloons AND flowers plus an ENORMOUS (fake) check with YOUR NAME on it! Why? Because, you certifiable cutie, you DESERVE the BLOG Publisher’s Clearing House Award for making people laugh! THANK YOU! I think you missed your calling. You should DEFINITELY have been a stand-up comic! (Note: Can one LOVE somebody they’ve never actually MET? ‘Cause I just love you to bits! LOL!) Have a MAHHHHHHVELOUS Tuesday!

    WAIT! “Waxing in the car story”??????? What am I missing?? Don’t hold out on me, girlfriend! This could be another chapter of the book. Seriously, every one of these blogs could go in a book. I AM NOT KIDDING!!!!!

    So…love your family! Your mom and dad are the BEST….oh! Just like you!

    Holy crap, I’m terrified of sharks, too. I would’ve had a heart attack if someone had done that to me, which is why I don’t go in the ocean, and, instead, sit on the beach with the children and make murals of exciting things I’d do if I wasn’t a total weenie, out of sea shells.

    HAHA I think my favorite is that your mom placed the onions on her gazelle.

    What was Even Steven’s reaction to the shark sightings?
