Happy November, yall! The holidays are approaching! And, for many of us, that means more than trimming the turkey or tossing tinsel; it means painful reminders and interactions. To cope, we may adopt one of the following strategies:
Pre-game: scramble to get everyone dressed and everything packed
1st quarter: brunch at grandma’s and the annual forced-feeding of that iffy congealed salad. Somebody throw a flag on that!
2nd quarter: lunch at Aunt Lorraine’s and another of Uncle Jim’s political gabfests
Halftime: strapping everyone back into the car, managing a toddler meltdown, and finding an operable gas station
