How Normal Is Your Family's Thanksgiving?

For the times when you just pumpk-can't.

Posted on
  1. What time's dinner?

    Before 2 p.m. Appetizers are important!
    Some time around 4 p.m. Enough time to mingle.
    6:30 p.m., promptly.
    It's an open-door policy, so people can come whenever.

  1. How long did it take for your aunt to stop hugging you?

    We kept it brief.
    A solid two minutes. There was a lot of swaying involved.
    We're still hugging.
    I didn't keep track, and I didn't mind it!

  1. Is dinner served buffet-style or family-style?

    Family-style: Everyone gets a seat and then we pass dishes around the table.
    Buffet-style: Get a plate then take a tour of the kitchen to fill it up.
    We kind of eat scattered around the living room and kitchen, so it's pretty casual.
    We eat out of take-out containers, so, both?

  1. Shoes: on or off?

    Off, duh. Otherwise we'd track mud everywhere.
    Shoes stay on, because gross, no.
    There's a pile at the door, but it's not enforced.

  1. When does the TV get turned on?

    It was on before we walked in. There's a lot to watch between the parade, the dog show, and football!
    There was a lull in the conversation around 3:30 p.m., so we got a little desperate.
    It stays silent the whole night. Silent and cold.

  1. Now that the tube's warmed up, what's playing?

    FOOTBALL.
    That loop of a fireplace, maybe some music.
    CNN / Fox News. It's a rough one, today.
    Home movies - the more embarrassing, the better.

  1. How early into conversation are politics brought up?

    It's grandpa's go-to, so, like, right away.
    It took a good hour or two, when people were done discussing "Dancing With The Stars."
    In the car on the ride over. Some of us carpooled. Good times.

  1. Does your family say a blessing before dinner?

    Every year! It's tradition.
    We never really do.
    If we remember to do it, then yeah.

  1. Does your family WILLINGLY say a blessing before dinner?

    No one's exactly happy about it, but there haven't been any complaints.
    If it's tradition, then it's tradition. We do it whether we like it or not.
    We do it because we love it and truly believe.

  1. On a scale of 1 to "TERRIFYINGLY HORRIBLE," how racist has the conversation been so far?

    1 - 4. A couple comments, but nothing to be alarmed over.
    5 - 8. Got some good tweets material, but no one had to abruptly change the subject.
    9 - 12. Some collars are being tugged, some glances are being tossed across the table, new topics are suggested wildly.
    13 - 16. NO ONE IS MAKING EYE CONTACT ANYMORE. CONSIDERING CHANGING THE FAMILY NAME.

  1. How many new significant others are at dinner this year?

    Actually, none! Good for all of us! Everything's the same as last year.
    There are a couple newbies. They seem nice?
    I don't wanna talk about it.

  1. How many newly single family members showed up to dinner this year?

    Maybe one or two? We don't like to call attention to uncomfortable topics.
    No more than usual.

    Yeah. I've... been answering questions all night. It's been awful.
    Nope! Dodged the bullet this year.

  1. How many farts?

    Grandpa ALONE has tallied up dozens.
    Everything falls apart between dinner and dessert. People roam from room to room.
    Not one that I've noticed, which is a new record!
    We have a contest, basically.
