So once again it's the time of year when we realize that we've actually invited our families to dinner for Thanksgiving. Husbands and wives turn to each other and say lovingly "What the Hell do you mean they're coming to OUR house this year? Didn't we just feed those freeloading freaks two years ago? I'm still trying to get the stains outta the carpet from when your Uncle Bob proved you CAN eat too much oyster stuffing and hurled chunks just as your cousin Myrna turned her camcorder in his direction becuse she wanted to capture the 'reality of overindulgence by the bourgoise' or whatever idiocy she was spewing that year. Never mind it won her the local film festival award, I DON'T WANT THOSE PEOPLE HERE!"..... or is that just my house? Hmmm. Anyway, we've used up all our best excuses for cancelling dinner plans - my fave is -"We're so sorry, we've got to cancel this year. I know it's short notice, but who knew little Sally would go off her meds and set fire to the cat? Again. Yeah, we're thinking she's not in a very 'social function' place right now..." What's the worst (or best) excuse you've used to avoid family at the holidays?

i can't imagine anything like this in our family....i hope stuff like this only happens in the minds of script writers.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Best excuses EVER for not having Thanksgiving folks around:

1/ "Uh, didn't you know that Thanksgiving is NOT celebrated in Australia?"

2/ "We have become vegetarians, you'll LOVE the stuffed zucchinis instead of turkey!"

3/ "Hubby lost his job; everyone's bringing something for dinner, you're down for the turkey, with the wild rice and chestnut stuffing please."

4/ "We're travelling to Faroffistan to catch the migration and mating courtship of the Alpine flea."

The cable box is broken, but we can watch Steel Magnolias and Beaches on DVD instead of football.

I don't have that problem but thanks for the laughs and by the way if you were serious, I'm sorry.

I'm still trying to figure out how me being crabby and saying "I don't want to go ANYWHERE for Thanksgiving!" turned into the inlaws being invited over and, "Oh yeah, we're making turducken."

My cats are having their weekly orgy and they don't allow outsiders.
