My father's side of the family is unstable. Most of them are in great need of medication to correct this. However, half of them believe that if you take enough vitamins you will live forever and the other half believe the pharmacutical companies are running a scam. This side of the family is full of paranoid people who discuss when the world is going to end. They are sweet, bizarre, freaks of nature and I love them all dearly. But God help me, if I am going to spend a weekend with them.
Here is the itinerary of the reunion: (mind you, this is MY version of it, so it may be even more than this)
- watch video of dead relatives trip to Ireland
- listen to tape of dead relatives funerals
- visit grave sites of numerous dead relatives
- go to homestead of dead relatives
- talk about dead relatives and how lucky they are that they don't have to pay taxes
I am going to the lake. Without the dogs. I will sleep, eat and play scrabble. The world is right once again.
