I have no objection to the barbecue part, but rather the family. So here I am, standing awkwardly in the corner, clutching a beer as equal parts condensation and perspiration slime across my hand. It 's a disgustingly typical Australian summer. My uncle presses down steaks on the grill, streaks of irrational fire lighting up to cast a vicious shadow against the brick wall backgrounding him. I stand a while, watching him, feeling a peculiar mix of emotions that I can 't quite define. This dull anger, felt towards him, towards the entire extended family gathered around me.

    Clomp. Clomp. Clomp. Clomp. Clomp. Chunk. The world slowly fizzles into existence around me as I slowly rise to my feet. It’s an absurdly small room, probably about 12 feet square. A single dim light bulb on the ceiling fails to fully illuminate the room. My head is killing me. There’s blood in my hair. I want to fall back to the floor.
