Thanksgiving Conversation - kept beautiful

In the spirit of the season, we're all looking forward to a great meal this week, time spent with family and friends, and of course - great conversation.  But wait one minute, some topics might just be carefully avoided in order to avoid the already awkward moments we've all experienced gathered round the table.

  • Politics or religion - DAH!!!
  • Don't discuss weight, age, physical attributes, etc as these are often sore spots anyway
  • Avoid discussing people not present.  Makes people wonder what you're saying about them if they're not around.  
  • DO NOT compare recipes on this eat-fest day!!!    There's nothing like an angry hen in the kitchen if you're busting on her recipes!!
  • How much you're enjoying the day
  • Paying lots of compliments
  • A  movie you've just seen
  • The latest sales at Barneys
We think you get the picture.    Compliment, enjoy, be of service, and  you can always complain on Tuesday.  Wait, Thanksgiving is on Thursday - ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh  no you've got it.
