Come on! Your Grandparents were having an affair with one another? Are you kidding me???
Chris’s parents married and like lots of couples during the Vietnam War, Mom stayed home with Chris’s brother. Dad returns and is not the same guy. He’s mistreating her and womanizing. Thandks tothe GI bill dad went to college to get his degree. They divorce and Mom goes to work. Chris and his older brother are separated each living with different Grandparents. His older brother is sexually abused by Grandpa. He now becomes really mean and picks not only on Chris but neighbor kids and animals too. He always refers to Chris as a piece of shit and tells him he’ll never amount to anything.
However, now that dad remarried and is a happier man, he treats Chris much better.
His mother remarried and is now in a stable place.
Moving on, Chris enters highschool and his insecurities set in. His comfort zone is music and being funny.
