Wouldn't you know the issue would resurface. Last night on Facebook, I saw a picture my adult cousin posted of her teen son cuddling with MY COUSIN! Insert slow motion screaming "NO-OO-OO-O" and then fits of laughter. Why me?!? I'm trying to figure out the lineage. My cousin's son, my second cousin (on dad's side) dating my cousin (on mom's side). *sigh* I'm pretty sure they aren't related.
Regardless, it's weird. Blood or not. Wouldn't you feel weird dating someone who you had a mutual cousin with? I guess, if they get married that's one less gift I have to buy. I won't be able to say, "I don't really want to go. I won't know anyone." Maybe they can get married around Thanksgiving and we can have turkey dinner at the reception? It would ease the burden of trying to 'see everyone' on our trip to Iowa.
Let's hope it doesn't go that far! I'm not quite sure how I would explain it to my daughter. She wouldn't understand. I can hear her now, "See mom, I told you it's okay to date your second cousin!"
I guess we officially have our first family secret...from Ky (at least).
