Episode 359236.325352 - When Snowflakes Collide aka Why I avoid certain sections of my family
My great aunt is an old woman. In addition to being immediately obvious, she will inform you of this fact at least seventeen times an hour. It is her normal conversation opener. My cousin is 19 and knows everything and is the only person in all of history to ever have a child, who is of course the most special, wonderful, and perfect child in the whole of creation.
It started with the stereo. First great aunt put on some big band era music and turned the stereo up. Then cousin put on some sort of current pop star woman, and turned the stereo up again. The great aunt got offended, took that music out, and put the big band era music back on, and turned the stereo up again. Back to pop star, and the music was now at full volume. It was turned down. Occasionally one of the adults present would turn the music down to a reasonable level and get a face full of 'your generation doesn't understand good music' from whose ever CD was in at the moment.
Great Aunt won the Specialist Snowflake award after about an hour when she took cousin's CD out and flung it against the wall, following it up with the 'I'm old and you should respect your elders' defense. Cousin did pull a strong runner up when she blamed Great Aunt (well, her generation, but mostly Great Aunt) for everything that has gone wrong in the entire world over the past twenty years or so.
And that, your honor, is when I killed them all. But I swear to you, I extended my pinky and did RSVP to the gathering within a reasonable time frame.
