I was watching The Wire this weekend (it's one of a few shows that people kept insisting I try and even though I'd tried it already and not liked it, I tried again) and in the second season there's this whole side to the story that involves a guy and his cousin and how close they are.
They're like brothers, really.
But I wouldn't know.
I didn't grow up with cousins around. Or Aunts or Uncles or Grandparents for that matter, so I don't know what it's like to have cousins.
Most people seem to like it, and some people, like in the show, love their cousins and are very close with them.
I've met my cousins (or most of them at least) but I don't know them and didn't grow up with them. So, since tv's the only thing I have to go on right now, I'm asking you instead.
What's it like growing up with cousins? And all that kind of extended family? What did I miss out on?
