I hope everyone's having a good weekend and Labor Day!
I didn't get off work today.
This weekend my parents threw a Zoom birthday party for me (really two Zoom parties, since my mom wanted a family reunion that didn't include my own friends at it since it's a milestone birthday coming up in a few days. My friends came to the second party).
Unfortunately, the infant son of one of my cousins has some serious medical problems, and my mom and dad have been "updating" everyone they are connected to on Facebook every time there is a change in the baby's condition. We all hope for the best for the baby, but my mom and dad overshare, and I was worried that this would dominate the conversation at that first party. Funnily, it didn't even come up at that party.
But one of my friends at the second party made what I thought was a casual inquiry about the baby, and my parents then turned it into an extensive, graphically detailed medical discussion about the baby's situation. I think some of my friends tuned out. I sent my dad a Chat message asking him to rein in the technical talk, but he didn't stop. I talked to him after the second party, and he admitted that he "gets carried away" with that kind of talk but he didn't get that it was inappropriate.
I hope the Fantasy Football goes better.
