No, not that kind of divorce...although if he doesn't start picking up his dirty clothes we may have to talk about it. Just kidding babe. I am going to wait for you to win the lottery and then take you for half your money.I want to divorce my family. They are so strange to me. I feel like I may have been adopted. They are quiet, they make you try and guess what they are thinking. Any subject that is even remotely difficult to talk about is strictly taboo(unless said behind another persons back). My Mom and all of her siblings lack the ambition, confidence, and drive that I have had since I was a teen and I was generally looked at as weird for being the way I was. Needless to say I left home at 19 and have never looked back. Of course I visit, call, and send gifts on the important days but I have no desire to ever move back home whereas my aunts, uncles, and cousins have never moved more than 20 miles from the house where everyone grew up.
So the reason for my wanting a divorce is simple. A call from my little sister who also has my sensibilty about life and moved out and far away just as soon as she could. Apparently my Mother is not speaking to her closest sister which has caused drama with my Grandparents, who also have been fighting with my cousin, who is using them for money and a place to stay. No one is speaking to each other and while everyone is generally healthy I know that they are all getting up there in age. It is silly for grown adults to behave this way? When I do go home to visit I am not one to mince words and everyone basically cringes when the conversation turns"controversial". Do I go back and kick some ass and set things on the right path? Do I let adults work out their problems and allow the strong to survive and the rest fall by the wayside? I think that I will take a vacation to Chicago and drink with my best friends(Yeah...Those ones. The biatches that moved to Chicago to work as Mimes on Michigan Ave) at the end of the month and then see how I feel then.
