I have to thank Heidi over at Virushead for bringing this “Dysfunctional Family Letter Generator” to my attention. Heidi and I have a lot in common, both having come out of a cult-like upbringing, and seeing this headline in my RSS feed list really caught my attention. Thanks Heidi! 🙂
Having come from a very dysfunctional family, and now being part of an extended dysfunctional family, step-family, blended family, “you have GOT to be kidding” sort of family, I couldn’t stop laughing at this letter generator. If only I had the courage to really send one of these, eh?
Laughter is therapeutic, right?
I especially liked the ability to change certain phrases in each sentence of the letter, making it even more humorous (and truthful) as I went along.
Unlike Heidi, I mailed out Christmas cards today, even to those I’d rather not bother with. So to just lighten the “funky” mood I was in all day, I’m now going to work out my angst writing and re-writing with this letter generator. After say, twenty revisions or so, I think I’ll be feeling peachy all over again. 😉
I thought for a minute I’d mention stumbling across a site that allows people to anonymously send a co-worker, friend or relative (whoever) an “anonymous hint” e-card letting them know that they wear too much perfume or cologne, have a body odor problem, their spouse is cheating on them, have bad breath, or various other offensive behaviors.
While I think the Dysfunctional Family Letter Generator is all in fun and not something I’d actually send anyone, sending someone (even anonymously) an e-card telling them they “stink” is well…, just plain mean. But, you be the judge. 😉
