    We all have that relative who is going to disrupt the Thanksgiving dinner harmony this year. It’ll likely be a man. I don’t want to be sexist, but it will.

    Nope. The solution we’ve come up with is to not invite her. That was for the official Thanksgiving dinner which already happened. For the current one on Thanksgiving day various family members will be with friends or other family… or even just alone rather than be with her.Report

    First this was just excellent. I love the bait and switch and was totally convinced I was about to read something insufferable. I was even ready with a ‘here we go again’ comment. Well done.

    Second, the audacity of FIFA to have this little tournament during football season is deserving of an epic smackdown. I host Thanksgiving at my house because I love it, but this just gave me another reason- mortgage payer’s veto over what’s on tv.Report
