You’re not talking with someone who shares those beliefs

Mom got a Thanksgiving day pass from the joint

This post’s title is a phrase my friend Anna shared, what you’re supposed to say to someone spewing dumb words at Thanksgiving dinner.

I did not come across anyone talking crap at either my lunch Thanksgiving on Long Island or my dinner Thanksgiving in Brooklyn.

The only tense moment was with the elderly Indian mother of an acquaintance.

Punjabi Mama: Why do you not have any children? It will be a problem when you are older. Who will take care of you?

Me: You’re not talking to someone who shares those beliefs. I put my mom in a nursing home.
