#2: things I haven't said to Sister 2 but want to:
"You were an annoying little shit for pretty much all the years of your first marriage. Let's not do that again, mmmmkay?"
"Do you remember all those screeds on Americans Are So Materialistic while you stuff your two suitcases per person, or just while going through Customs?"
"If you ever send me those screeds again I'm going to retaliate with 'Israelis* are so hypocritical' and 'Nobody gets to criticize American racism unless they live here because you don't know what it's like'.** Seriously, let's NOT do that again."
And what would YOU like to say to your relatives?
* I don't actually believe this. Making a point about her past behavior.
** Likewise! 'Nobody gets to criticize Israel's (racist, apartheid, illegal) treatment of Palestinians because you don't live here.'. Mmm, right.
