Family Get(ting) Together

| NH, USA | Related | July 31, 2012

(My boyfriend and I met when he was a regular at the bar where I work. His grandfather passes away and we attend the funeral. Thoughout the process of the obituary, we discover that he is actually first cousins with one of my coworkers, whom I’ve known for years, and my boyfriend knew for a few months before we started dating. They hadn’t known of their relationship due to various family estrangements, but welcomed each other with open arms once they realized. I am telling my dad over the phone about this twist of fate.)

Me: “So, it turns out that Jane is Joe’s first cousin, and they never knew this whole time that he was coming into the bar!”

Dad: “That’s crazy. Wow, good thing he decided to hit on you!”
