Oh, wait. All Jeff Foxworthy jokes are bad.
Anyway, the rumors are confirmed! A family member is dating his second cousin.
I think so, at least. This genealogy stuff is SO confusing.
Here's the deets: This particular family member was adopted as an infant by his uncle and aunt when his mother (his uncle's sister) was killed in a car accident. The aunt's sister is the mother of the woman he is dating.
So that's second cousins, right? Or is it?
ANYHOO, certain family members are skeeved right out by the whole holy-shit-they're-related thing. Personally, I'm more skeeved out by the ten year age difference (he's mid-thirties; she's mid-twenties), and the fact that this guy has been in and out of rehab for various addictions for his entire adult life. The woman in question is a babe in the woods compared to this thug. (Isn't my family fun?)
It should be interesting come family-reunion time, anyway. Sheesh.
