Normal family

‘So your mum and her dad are married?’


‘And you’re married?’


‘But you’re brother and sister?’

‘Step-brother and step-sister. We’re not blood relations. We’re the same age.’

‘But you grew up together?’

‘From the age of twelve when my mum moved in with her dad.’

‘So, you were living as siblings and then you started dating?’

‘When we were sixteen.’

‘Even though your parents were married?’


‘But you have a younger step-sister who is related to you both?’


‘And you have two kids?’

‘We’re not hillbillies, y’know.’

‘You’re not a normal family, either.’

‘Yes, we are.’

With today's different sorts of families, this isn't nearly as odd as it seems on the surface. You describe it well, Rob.
