NEPHOUSIN

nephew + cousin

¤

This word was inspired by the birth of my most beautiful little baby cousin, who is fathered by one of my most favourite cousins. We grew up together. He is a part of my personality.  He and his brother are two of the most important people in the world to me. He is basically a brother to me; therefore, his son is my nephew. Full stop… except most people know I’m an only child, so I have to make it clear that my mother hasn’t miraculously given birth to a child who has even more miraculously given birth to/fathered another child.  HENCE: Nephousin.

Ponderings:

  • Did I really just write that paragraph above?
  • Are familial labels relevant at all anymore?
