I was at my aunt's, and a dumb distant relative of mine who was there kept talking about this psychic that her friend went to who felt the presence of the spirits of her parents in her room blah blah blah blah. I couldn't stand it and went home. They are still there talking about that crap, probably. Ugh.
She goes around with those huge jewels everywhere. She has a big golden disc ring on her finger, a half-golf-ball-sized diamond (fake?) ring, a wrist-band with pearls the size of small tomatoes, randomly huge earrings and more I don't remember right now. It's so incredibly pretentious. And ugly. And makes her seem shallow and dumb.
She is generally dumb. I don't even remember what else specifically she said, but I remember there was something that made me think "oh man, she is dumb".
My aunts and her are there right now, talking about aunty stuff. (They are all like 40-50, btw.) You know those conversations? It's one of those conversations where you sit on the side and listen in, in shock. On some sentences, half of the words in the sentence are names of people you don't know. On others, you'll hear them talking about really trivial things, and treating them seriously. Sometimes they'll all argue about something completely wrong just because nobody figured out it was wrong.
Here is a memorable example:
Annoying Distant Relative: Oooh, and did I tell you about my friend <name forgotten>? She is making a lot of money now. <Name of TV celebrity> went to her a couple of weeks ago.
One of aunts: Yeah, amazing... She only recently studied it, and already she's making 250 NIS [a little over $55 -ed] off every session!
Other aunt: Oh? What does she do?
ADR: Oh, she studied Numerology and she does <activity forgotten, something like card reading>
Me (from the other side of the room): Studied Numerology? Hmm... Did she get a degree?
Everybody: (laughing, completely missing the sarcasm)
ADR: No, but she makes more money than some people with a degree...
Me: Well, not all. (everybody ignores this and carries on) Well, you know what? You're all idiots. Screw you guys, I'm going home.
That was when I went home. I probably didn't say the last part out loud. Too bad.
