My second to youngest aunt is picking on the youngest, trying to (and succeeding in) drive the youngest out of the church congregation they are both members of. The youngest aunt recently escaped a very badly physically abusive marriage, and is suffering memory problems and PTSD from repeated blows to the head. She's applied for disability, and I think she deserves and needs the help.
The second to youngest aunt, her immediate elder sister, is very much against the youngest aunt getting disability. Says she should just suck it up and get a job.
And the church is turning on my youngest aunt. Somehow, she's a sinner that they want nothing to do with because she's a victim.
Disclaimer, here: that aunt doesn't have a job. Doesn't have a driver's license. Doesn't do anything except sit on her butt during the week, then expect the aunt that has a job to pick her up so that she can get away from her disabled husband (upon whose pension she's living) on the weekend. The only reason she's treating her baby sister this way is because she's not getting the attention. She is a vile, vicious, backbiting bitch, and I am done with her. I will not reward behavior like that from my kids--why the fuck should I put up with it from a nominal adult?
In any case, I've been thinking about what I want to do for Christmas for my family. I'm thinking I'm going to get my youngest aunt something nice, something fun. I'll have to think on what to put into a "movie night" type basket for her.
My second to youngest aunt--the shrew--is really on my shit list. I think nothing will say that clearer than getting her something that I know she's going to find distasteful, and including a sharp message with it. Something like a bottle of honey whiskey to sweeten that sour, bitter disposition, and maybe relax her into a bit more of a tolerant state of mind. Since she disapproves of any type of alcohol--even red wine, like the doctors prescribed to her husband to try to improve his heart health just a bit--that should do the trick.
What do y'all think? Should I do it, or is it just a waste of good whiskey?
(I know, I know--get on your grading HH. No more using blogging as a procrastination method.)
