Now that would make for an awkward family situation...

Just a quick funny story from my uneventful weekend. My cousin was having a housewarming party complete with her long term bf's family. I was making conversation with his Mom and found out that his recently divorced uncle lives in my apartment building. Later his sister and I had a brief conversation that went like this:

Sister: So, you live in my Uncle's building?
Me: Yes.
Sister: Are you single?
Me: Yes.
Sister: He's so cute, you should totally meet him. He's 36 and has a daughter, but she lives with his ex wife. He has this girl friend right now who is 53 going on 70 - quite a cougar and...
Me: I think that might be weird.

Granted, my cousin and I are merely step cousins (though it's been that way since we were young children) I still think it would be a little strange (as if I'm even entertaining the idea) but the sister didn't think it was weird at all. This reminds me of the time when my other cousin was pushing me to date her now husband's little brother. It just seems creepy.

I mean I'm not that desperate... yet, am I?

  1. OMG, very akward family situation there.
    Glad I'm not in your shoes, I probably would (wanted) to tell her... 'What the hell is wrong with you, what do you think I am? You think you can rub me off on anyone you want? Get real!' But oh well... good luck hey!

    Oh and btw, I think I figured out the comment thing on my blog. I hope so.

  2. I still can't leave comments on your blog. I can only check "funny" "interesting" or the other one. I'm really not sure why that is. You must have some sort of different template.
