One of my French cousins (meaning, he’s 100% French and not Franco-American, like me and Chef Boyardee) is planning a trip for this next 4th of July to fly out and stay with my parents in California. He’s bringing his kid, his new girlfriend, and her kid.
I hear through the family grapevine (which is catty as all get out) that this new girlfriend is anti-American and quite vocal about it. So we’re all kind of wondering why she’s hooked up with someone whose entire immediate family lives in the States, and who’s related (by marriage) to countless Americans. And why she is imposing herself on my parents!
Oh, to be a fly on the wall for that visit.
