Just because you’re family doesn’t mean you get along with each other. Most of the time you love them, but sometimes they get under your skin. They say things that make you question if you ever actually knew them. Or that clearly indicate they don’t know you at all. Anyone who says, “Oh, that would never happen in my family!” is clearly prejudiced, in denial and any further commentary from that source should be taken with ten grains of salt. Family that you choose, the Orphans and Oddballs, generally doesn’t engender the same kind of tension.
