You want to know something stupid? I can’t tell you a good damn thing about most of my sisters and brothers. I sure can’t tell you what it was like to live with them, because most the time, I didn’t. That’s the thing about being the youngest in a hurricane of offspring, at some point they make a jump all willy-nilly and sometimes, they don’t make a show of coming back.
Unless, maybe, every time they come back is a show.
Seems to me I can’t write a story about my family if I can’t talk about my family, not with any acute knowledge, that is. So, I’m just going to sit here every now and then and write a few things down, leave a little tangible evidence of my presence, stir it up once-in-a-while and see what kind of story to make of it.
