Well, Now There's No Need to Clean

Dad called to say that the recalcitrant brother is not coming for Christmas. He's spending it in North Carolina with his crazy wife and her boyfriend instead. I'm a little bummed, but now I don't feel so bad about procrastinating about getting his cigars.

Short version: My idiot brother married an insane crazy woman after my parents were like "We're not having another bastard grandchild." My brother lacks ambition, but has a low tolerance for inconvenience.

When she became inconveniently crazy, he sent her back to her people in North Carolina and he moved down to Georgia to be near his oldest son and ex-girlfriend.

They've never bothered to get divorced--because getting divorced requires making a plan ("We're getting divorced" for instance) and then carrying it out (by say, actually doing it) and neither one of those things are either of their strong suits.

But she's got some boyfriend who doesn't care (and probably is glad to have a good excuse not to marry her) and my brother likes him just fine and so he's going there for Christmas to make things easy on the kid.

Damn! and I thought my husband's family was odd. My brother-in-law divorced his skank wife because he's being sued by a minimum of 3 parties, and he's filed bankruptcy after putting everything in her name. Oh, to top that, they still come to family functions together. Really puts the FUN into dis functional.

Oh my. But at least you got out of the cleaning.

Your brother could get a job writing for "My Name Is Earl".

Dammit, Aunt B. I came to Chris Wage's party and you left two hours ago. Fuckin' lame.

Fritz, I had people to go, places to see. And now I feel like a total chump.

I won't hold it against you. I did think the Comment Tator was you at first because she hugged me.
