As you may all know my son in law is 14 years older than my daughter and closer to my age. This weekend I requested that I see my grandson and they informed me that they were going to North Louisiana to a family reunion. They invited me to accompany them and possibly meet my son in law's brother. I sent my daughter an email declining the invitation. Here is the email and my reasons for declining:

You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

Dear Brandi and Barry,
I know you invited me to go to Barry's family reunion this weekend and possibly meet his brother. I have thought about this and for the following reasons I must decline. Should I meet his brother and God forbid fall in love with him and get married I realized that as much as I love you, I would not want you as a sister in law nor would I want my son in law to also be my brother in law. Barry's brother would also become his father in law and your stepdad as well as your brother in law. As I was thinking further into this fiasco, I realized my grandson would also become my nephew. Imagine his confusion when he'd have to call me Aunt Nammy. Lord help us if I'd have a child because that child would not only be your brother/sister and your nephew/niece but my grandson's cousin and/or Aunt or Uncle.
As I was thinking, I almost lost it when it dawned on me that we would share the same mother in law and once again share the same last name.
Oh my God...I must decline because that is far too redneck for me to handle.
