The 8 Most Awkward Questions You’re Asked on Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving-a time for food, family, and awkward conversation.
As much as we love to go home for the holidays, I think we can all agree, sometimes the Thanksgiving dinner conversation focuses a little more on our personal life than we'd like. Below are the 8 most awkward questions you'll probably be asked by Aunt Edna this Thanksgiving. When in doubt on how to answer, stuff your mouth full of mashed potatoes and just nod politely.
ARE YOU SEEING ANYONE ?
No, but thanks for pointing out that I'm the only dateless person over the age of 12, still sitting at the kids table.
WHEN ARE YOU GETTING MARRIED ?
This one's even better if you actually bring a date. Nothing like Grandma pressuring your boyfriend of 2 months to put a ring on it!
WHY AREN'T YOU EATING MORE ?
Umm, maybe because this jello mold looks like it was made in 1976.
WHEN ARE YOU GONNA HAVE KIDS ?
Wow, yes! Please, let's talk about the details of my bedroom life with my husband over pecan pie.
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO BE DONE WITH SCHOOL?
How about when there are actually jobs available. Don't kill my vibe!
HAVE YOU GOTTEN A REAL JOB YET?
Nope, thanks for the reminder! I should probably start sending out hundreds of resumes...oh wait, I'm already doing that.
HAVE YOU PUT ON A LITTLE WEIGHT?
Yep, thanks for noticing! It's called eating your feelings, now pass me the stuffing.
ARE YOU STILL LIVING WITH YOUR PARENTS?
Yep, saving up until I get that "real job".
If any of these questions make you feel down, just remind yourself of one thing:
