Color Me Bamboozled!!!

I was sucked into goin’ to a family reunion!!


It was mine!! MY FAMILY!!! My sister, RubyJune did it!!

My niece has been wantin’ me to come visit with her but becuz I was ill, I just couldn’t do it. So I text my sister to tell her I was comin’ down for Sunday Dinner.

She called me. “Sis, come on Saturday so it will be easier on Granny.” Well, I’d walk thru fire for my granny! Anything to make it easier on her. I wasn’t real sure why Saturday was better than Sunday becuz we all bring food now, so Granny doesn’t have to cook… I was slightly confused.

And then I thought, well, RubyJune knows how I feel about my stupidass cousin and her kids and they ALWAYS Show Up On Sunday. So if I go on Saturday, I’ll miss those idiots and have a good visit with my sister and niece and Granny and Grandpa. And my daughter said she was gonna take the boys fishin’ so she would be there too.

My daughter, EudoraMae, text me, “Mom what do I need to bring?” No clue! Ask RubyJune.

And I let it go.

And then I got to thinkin’ maybe I’d better take burgers or sandwich makin’ to Granny’s so I text RubyJune.

She said, “It’s not at Granny’s it’s at the CAMPGROUNDS!”


I have been bamboozled!! Shanghaied into a reunion!!

I don’t wanna go to a reunion where people don’t talk to me!! I’m not the worse of the relatives… NOT EVEN CLOSE!! But they treat me like a leper!!

I put on my big girl panties and my “Power to the Beaver” tee shirt… and dealt with it. I WAS ME! I made a spectacle of myself… which make me memorable and that’s way better than ignored.

And I haven’t spoke to my brother since the blow up over Mom and his dumb bitch wife. He walked in and I waved at him. He waved at me like he didn’t want anyone to see him do it… so I just marched right up to him and hugged his neck and kissed his cheek and told him I loved him and walked away!

I didn’t do anything to him to deserve him treatin’ me like a leper. NOT ONE THING!

He later came over and chatted with me about how he and Mom are gettin' along… she lives with him. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!

But my mom, I didn’t even acknowledge her. Or Bub’s DumbBitch wife… and she’s gotten all fat again. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA!!!!

I survived and very few people talked to me. I kept to my niece and sister… which is what I wanted. Some cousins spoke to me. But you know that awkward silence that happens… I just walked away. People will think what they want and I just don’t give a shit anymore.

Oh and the StupidAss Cousin and her kids… showed up. Nasty Bunch. If my grandparents ever come up dead and their home burglarized, my StupidAss Cousin and her Nasty Bunch did it!

And I’m the one that people treat like a leper!!

Ugh, family reunions are the worst. To me it's like, if I don't already talk to you on a daily or monthly basis it's because I don't care about you or your life so why do I want to hang out with you all? haha

I'm glad you survived it!
