I don’t know how typical my family is. Really I don’t. One nephew is married to C, who is half Indonesian. Another nephew is married to A; she’s half Japanese. My cousin lives in
New Zealand so there’s a decent chance
at least one of the girls will hook up with a guy who’s part Maori.
And my unofficial foster niece (and there’s a great story behind that) is getting very serious with a young man who just happens to be African American. Serious enough that she’s spending a lot of time with his family. Serious enough that everybody is hoping they BOTH make it out for nephew number 3’s graduation this spring And all anybody can seem to think is what’s left?
I mean, is this typical? Or is this a west coast,
Pacific Rim attitude? Because all I can think is as long
as they treat each other right and love each other I don’t care if they’re
purple with green polka dots.
