Road trip

More is revealed today as we learn that Gil and Mimi are not only still married, the kids are Still kids. All these years later (unless we’re still in years-ago-land) Mimi took the car (presumably her car; do they have 2? I would think so.)

Life is about priorities. After Gil has gotten so many awards Mimi figures she’ll blow off this ceremony to go see her ailing mom, who is obviously far enough away it requires a weekend trip. Completely understood. But why just leave on the spot and not tell Gildo beforehand? Is it that hard to say you wanna go see your own mom? Especially in this day and age with texting etc, cant she utilize other forms of communication then a written note?

And you can be worthy of someones love and still go away for a weekend without them, Mimi. The statement reflects some marriage friction, as in Gil is spending too much time coaching and not enough time with his family.

Well, gee, thats not the Gil WE know. What happened to Mimi’s coaching at the same school and the runs together and the lemonade together and talks in the house and…etc.?

If anything, our complaint is he doesnt do anywhere NEAR enough coaching. Now its the other way around?

Good to see the kids are so involved in their phones they dont bother talking to Mimi. Just like Gil apparently doesnt either. Monkee see, monkee do.


  1. Looks like Gil’s daughter has some of them there new fangled ear buds. I wonder if she is listening to The Frantix song, “My Dads a Fucking Alcoholic”? I sho’ hope so.
    How old is that lad? He seems too old to be watching Teletubbies or whatever the hell that is.

  2. It’s “Adventure Time with Finn & Jake”, a really good Cartoon Network series available on HBOMax.

  3. Maybe she’s listening to Gin and Juice by Snoop Dogg to understand Gil a little better
