Let’s pretend that you were screwed over by your brother and you lost your restaurant.
Let’s assume that he still owns it.
Let’s just say that you never want to go into that restaurant again.
Let’s surmise that the rest of the family still eats at that establishment.
Let’s suppose that your mom asks you to join the family for a meal….there.
Let’s imagine that this has happened for every holiday in the last 5 years.
Let’s playact that you don’t want to set foot in that cesspool of unscrupulousness.
Let’s shuck and jive that I want a new family.
