(Newser) – The McCains are hardly the average American family, but Cindy still wants that gas tank filled when the car comes back. Cindy, a reticent John, and eldest daughter, Meghan, 23, spilled the beans to People about McCain family life:

  • On messing with mom: “Sometimes I just like to shock her and say the dirtiest jokes I can possibly think of and she's like, ‘Oh, Meghan!’ I think she secretly enjoys them.”

  • On bonding: Cindy and daughter Bridget, 17, "play around together with art and music programs. Not games. Everything has to have an educational purpose.”
  • On Cindy’s house rules: Out after midnight? Better check in: "Just because you're 24 and on your own doesn't mean I don't worry about you.”
