What's the worst, best, or most bizarre family outing you've ever had, or can dream up?
The basic problem with family members is that you can't choose them, like you can with other people. You just show up in their lives and then they propagate more people into your life, as time goes on.
If you're lucky, your family isn't dysfunctional, but - let's face it - all families struggle to get along. Broken dreams, conflicting agendas, frustrated expectations, inflexible roles... there are a lot of reasons for it.
Some family outings are designed to encourage cohesion, confirm roles and responsibilities, or just get everyone out of the house before they kill one another.
What is your family outing going to be like?
