I thought about blowing it off..
but there are only so many family dinners you can skip.
So I went.
And the questions started.
I told everyone I lost my job
and I was actively looking for another.
I came so close to raiding my sister's medicine chest.
Then I realized..
I'd already delivered the bad news.
Putting it out there right away..
Uh, I'm Dean and I'm an addict.
I just got back from a family event myself.
My older brother's wedding.
I have a lot of the same issues that Sheldon has.
Some old grudges and some new ones.
I could feel everybody wondering if I was high.
Expecting me to be the same person
that showed up to anything without a buzz on.
The refreshments are for after the meeting.
