The wife has been watching reruns of CSI on YouTube. The son began talking about the character, Sara Sidle. While others came and went, she remained. Son and I soon realized that we knew her entire family.
Her father, ‘Homie’ Sidle, came up from the ghetto and made good, but is in prison because he killed a guy.
Her mother, Sue E. Sidle, was devastated by his crime, and took her own life.
Her older brother, Herbie Sidle, opened his own plant nursery and landscaping company.
Her younger brother, ‘Pesty’ Sidle, the family joker and prankster, finally settled down and got a job with a firm which rents out poisoned traps to warehouses and food companies, to control rats.
Sara’s grandmother, Jenny Sidle, came here from Germany, shortly after WW II, and has learned to keep her political and social opinions to herself.
You can take all these names and occupations, and stick ‘em where the pun don’t shine. We were a bit rushed because we had to get back to the show after the commercial. Can you think of any more members of the Sidle family that we have missed?? 😕
