I love most people in my family, especially my Aunt Jean who came down to visit this weekend. But some people are undeserving of my love.
During the barbeque today, Uncle Frank mentioned Arianna wanting to get a specific tattoo. Good for her :) If thats how she wants to express herself great (granted having one on your wrist and wanting to teach elementary school will result in long sleeves everyday in most districts). Arianna didnt want to tell me because of what aunt carmela said about mine when i got it ("Youre mother would hate it etc.)
So shes fine with scheduling a tattoo appt. for arianna in a difficult to hide spot, but mine was unthinkable?
I was tempted to confront aunt carmela with the theory that if her opinion on tattoos has changed, she should apologize to me, but decided against it because the last time i tried that, it ended in me walking away in tears and wishing I could fly away from all the bullshit (until Christopher found me).
Fun repressed memory came back today: My aunt kathy, aunt jean, and marlene (mom and debbis friend since high school) had to prevent my aunt carmela from coming into my house when my mother was dying because my mom didnt want her there. wonder why that was...
I feel bad for my brother. Can't have been easy attending your mothers wake on your 18th birthday.
