My Christmas Confession

I bought my mother in law “Julie & Julia” on DVD for Christmas.

Part of me is giving it to her because I think she’ll like it.

And another, altogether more sinister part of me is giving it to her because I know, in my heart, in my bones, in my spleen, that once she’s watched it, she will deliver this sublimely awkward proclamation:

“The girl in the movie, Julie, she had something called a blog.Β  You used to try writing, maybe you should get one of those.

Ask Owen to help you set it up.”

  2. my survival technique for the family visit is just this: Predictive Anthropology. predicting what they will say and do… oh, this is festive! you’ll have to let us know if it works!

  3. My survival technique for family visits is wine and selective hearing. Like daisyfae, I can’t wait to hear if it works. And how you decide to respond.

  4. Can’t wait to see if your prediction comes true.
