We are having close to 40 people over to our house for Thanksgiving. And it just so happens that there are a lot of, how shall we say…, “strong personalities” that are coming. Needless to say, things can get controversial. In order to avoid being part of the
massive argument controversy I have created a list of responses to questions that lead to murder controversy. Please feel free to use these at your Thanksgiving if things get…..controversial.
Argument causing question: So, what do you think about the President?
Answer: Yes, I really did enjoy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1. Thanks for asking.
Argument causing question: How do you feel about Healthcare?
Answer: Did you know really cold things, like liquid nitrogen, can actually burn you? Imagine getting burned by something that was freezing? What’s up with that?
Argument causing question: What do you make of Sarah Palin?
Answer: Did I ever tell you about the time I spilled pineapple juice on my laptop? Funny story.
Argument causing question: How do you feel about [insert any religious subject here]?
Answer: You know, I really feel like grown-up cereals should have prizes in them too. Don’t you?
Argument causing question: What do you think about immigration?
Answer: I think I’m going to immigrate over to the dessert table- yum!
Argument causing question: Who did you vote for?
Answer: I was thinking about owls the other day. What do you think, most undervalued animal ever?
Argument causing question: So, when are you going to get married and start having babies?
Answer: Do you ever think about the word “tissue”? It’s a weird word. Sounds almost like a sneeze. And you use one after you sneeze. Think about that.
I hope you found these dangerous conversation diverters useful. They can be used on any major holiday when families gather.
Happy Thanksgiving! And for those of you not from the US- I just wish you very happy. I won’t be posting Thursday or Friday (because I will most likely be in some type of coma). I am so thankful for each and every one of you who read and comment on this blog!
