This week's theme from Wandering Through the Shelves is something either people love, or people hate. Personally, I love seeing my extended family...until they start talking politics, then I want to drink myself into a stupor. This week, I decided to focus on family get-togethers that none of these people wanted:
1) Rachel Getting Married
Kym has been in and out of rehab for a long time. She comes home for Rachel's wedding, but ends up with most of the attention on her, albeit unwanted. This may have been the most awkward pre-wedding of all time.
2) Shotgun Stories
You know what's super awkward? Being at a funeral of your father, when his three other children from a previous marriage show up and deliver a eulogy over how shitty he is. (And he must have been, he named his older kids "Son," "Boy" and "Kid")
3) Winter Passing
Reese goes home to visit her writer father because she's offered a ton of money to find some love letters he had written her mother. When she gets there, she finds one of his former students and a wannabe musician living with him. Of course she clashes with them.
