Can somebody out there explain to me why families have a whole system of secrets underlying this warm fuzzy surface stuff?
If you are a member of a “close family” and it was sincerely REAl, what secrets would need to be kept? I understand that in certain situations it is best to bite our tongues, but when everyone in the family has to feel awkward and act FAKE just to protect the feelings of one individual who in fact should be uncomfortable?
Instead we will suddenly all be in the running for Oscars for our great portrayals as IGNORANT.
I just don’t get it.
I guess the bottom line is that there will be a another chance to deal with this, and for now I will go and ACT for the sake of once in a lifetime celebrations.
