Okay, I don’t think they’re really cousins.
How I Am Related To The Yao Cousins:
My great-uncle and their grandma were both widowed. They got married, and so now my great-uncle is their grandfather, and their grandmother is my great-aunt.
Is there a word for that relationship?
Whatever. It’s easiest to call them cousins.
I like them. I like them a lot. We discuss pistachios (did you know that a pistachio is a legume? I didn’t). And grammar. And vegetarian human meat. We play freeze tag and blind-folded sardines and hide-and-go-seek-in-the-dark and stupid church games. I’m always very sore after a visit with the Yao cousins.
The Yao cousins make movies. I love their movies. When I hear that a Yao movie is coming up, I start stalking their Facebook profiles for signs of completed movie. I nag them to hurry up so I can see it. I brag to my friends until they are sick of hearing about the fabulous Yao cousins.
But I’m not the only one who thinks they make amazing movies. They just won first place in the SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) Futurewave division! Go Yao cousins!!!
As long as I’m advertizing the Yao cousins today, I may as well mention this blog. It’s about The Doings of Homeschooled Girl in Randomness Land.
(Did I mention the Yao cousins are homeschooled? That’s one of the reasons that they are so awesome)
