Day 21

My aunt found her cousin, my great aunt Frances' son, recently and shared the news with me tonight.

Our new relative is in his 70s. He graduated from Columbia. He's a history professor (retired now) who lives in North Carolina and recently wrote a novel (Russian historical fiction). One of his sons teaches Arabic and English in Kuwait. Another lives in Long Island and works in finance.

*jaw open* what the hell?

I had a moment where I was all damn, where did my side of the family go wrong?

And then, obviously I come by this history nonsense honestly.
