Shakespeare in the cornfield.

I don't know if I will ever write about my trip to Ohio for my family reunion, for there's not really much to tell, really. It's funny to me, though, how my entire family suffers from the same denial that I've often accused my mom of exhibiting.

People faked illnesses to get away from one another. No one ever told anyone to their face how they really felt. I can't be more specific than that, but it was silently vicious.

Everyone's performing, so much so that the behavior becomes contagious. Even I'm tired from sneaking away to talk to the people I really want to talk to and holding up a fake smile.
