I'm in a state. Tonight my family is meant to go to a barbecue which will most likely turn into an atomic indoor war zone. Somehow that brother of mine has gotten his godmother to invite both my parents to this event. This is the same godmother who use to be my mum's best friend turned boss. Who later got fired from the company she started and subsequently blames my mother. As one may guess tensions are high between all parties including my father and brother's godmother, for what reason I don't know. But needless to say I'm sitting on pins and needles waiting to see what happens. Maybe hurricane Irene won't be what destroys the city but in fact it will be the sizzling tension erupting from this barbecue.
