“Nick loved his cousins, they were family after all, and according to his mother, you have to love family. Over the years, he had also noticed that the less he saw them, the more lovable they became. He would really love them if they moved to California.” 1 likes
“You do realize that the Cold War is over, right?” Okay, he’d let the first reference to communism go, but this was just ridiculous. Uncle Earl pointed at Nick. “Don’t you believe a word of it. That’s just what they want you to think.” 1 likes
