DAY 19: Favorite Max Moment
Maid: More strudel, Herr Detweiler?
Max: How many have I had?
Max: Make it an uneven three.
As a kid, I thought Uncle Max was hysterical. As an adult, I understand that while he is a “charming old sponge” and does seem to love his family, he is quite the selfish cad. So when picking a favorite moment of his, it became really hard because even when he’s helping them escape the Nazis, he makes sure to lament the loss of profit he’ll see when they go. So I do have to cite that every time Max is around food, hilarity ensues. :) I almost included the pink lemonade…
