Timmins ON — Dating for 4 months, David Byrd finally invited his new girlfriend Ellen over for dinner with the family on Saturday night hoping to give her a glimpse into where he came from. “Pass the baby cabbages, please,” his brother asked Ellen who could only just sit there and smile. ” Oh you mean the brussels sprout, sure here you go” she replied looking for any sign that he was just being cute. Several seconds passed without a sign until David asked for the baby cabbages as well. She once again sat there plotting her escape from this idiot boyfriend with an idiot family that doesn’t know the proper terms for common vegatables. Ellen knew she couldn’t just get up and leave but instead decided to just sit there and to get through the dinner so that she could escape later. Ellen is known to be a bit picky but surely there has to be something wrong with a group of people that act like complete toddlers when food is nearby. There has to be. There just does.
