So...everything had been fine for a while. I wrote my DA letter, very clear and also very surprinsingly "Apostate" according to the elders. So at first, dad does what he's told is right and starts the shunning. He won't even go somewhere I go.
Then I guess we were lucky, because he started to slowly let things slide, with the help of my super mom who's trying real hard to make him open his eyes. So now, for the last months, everything was pretty normal. He didn't speak to me, but then he never really did before. So I often followed the family to the movies on weekends and we were sitting next to each others at family dinners at grandmas and all that. I even directed a few playful words to him now and then, that he didn't have to answer, to show that I was not going to follow stupid WT rules.
So a few weeks ago, we were gone camping for a week, and we visited a huge mall . And who do we run into? Of all people, a family of JWs we know pretty well. It was a 1 in a million chance to have been in this foreign city at the same time and at the same mall. It was even my dad who called out to them. And him and the brother talked for a while, they always had been pretty good buddies. I had baby-sat the girls a lot before, even though they were almost 10 years younger they were pretty much th only persons I could have called friend when I was in. They really are sweet girls, and I pity them of being in such a family.
Anyway, they talk for awhile, the sister even chats with my non-JW mom. Everyone is all smiles and friendliness, the JWs trying to ignore my presence, but I do get a few smiles to the girls. And then they go, and we leave it as it is. (I pointed out to my mother though, that I'm pretty sure I saw the bro snap a picture of us all from far away. lol) He's the kind of righteous man who would turn in even a friend.
We forgot about the incident, but this week, dad came back more then an hour late from the meeting. Turns out the elders kept him for a little meeting after the meeting. Now would that be a Judicial Comittee, if all the eldies are there? So the bastard he calls a friend just went and told on him. And it seems like the elders went on another speach behind my back about how much of an apostate I am, and a danger, and how I shouldn't have to be going out with my family at my age. And now we're back where we began. With mom and the rest of the family being very upset...and we're wondering what will happen now. It feels like going round ans round in circles.
Well, I just needed to share. I feel super pissed this morning. Pretty happy to own all of Alanis Moristte CDs, they were of good use this morning. Damn, I could punch the stupid bro right on the nose.
