In the course of the last few years, I have been pretty artful at avoiding political conversations with members of my extended family during Thanksgiving (or anytime for that matter.) My family’s political opinions run the spectrum so the potential for lighting a powder keg is pretty high as we are members of a highly opinionated group.
I am pretty blunt, “It is Thanksgiving, how about sending me this in an email.” And I move on the conversation about something benign.
But, some just can’t stop the urge to opine.
Some will have the unfortunate experience of having a distant relative getting a little deep into their cups and start pontificating crazy conspiracies. You know, a real buzz hassle.
Maybe this will help. Maybe.
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
