Oh man I feel bad for your idiot brother too. That is just not cool of his idiot ex to do that to him. And I feel bad for your niece being forced to say that shit and not be able to see her dad. Whatever else your idiot brother is, I'm glad he is at least a decent father. Counts for something. And of course the ex is a Trumper. Of course. ((sighs))

I hope you have fun at Origins. Yes bathe in sanitizer. Or get one of those hazmat suits like from that movie Outbreak and say you're cosplaying. Seriously, good luck at the con and have fun.

Take care my friend.
