Family vacations are strange, I tell ya. Especially the older you get. Personalities clash. People argue. Sometimes (but hopefully not) fisticuffs break out. And there’s usually a lot of GUILT. (“What do you mean you’re going to do something by yourself today?”).
Mary Beth Barone is a comedian in New York City, and she recently decided to launch a preemptive strike because she did the unthinkable: she wanted to go on a date during her family vacation.
Gasp! I tried to do this in 2004…but I got stood up…and I’m still not over it…
So Barone presented her family members with a pamphlet by answering all questions related to her upcoming dating experience. This is brilliant.

I think my favorite potential question is “What’s the parking situation in Miami?” A Mom and Dad question if there ever was one.
And people on Twitter were lovin’ it.
Wow if I had done that over Christmas I might still be living at home
