Often, during this time of the year, families will often find themselves nestled next to each other in a frenzy of soul food, laughter, wine, and sometimes dismay.
Oh, I know.
In a loose setting, families tend to forget to address any and all past issues, and simply regress to let bygones stay bygones; but more often than none, the good and juicy families have the ability to counter-attack any semblance of normality for a quick jab, punch, or slap from a past boxing match.
This, as you can imagine, can lead to a kind of spectacle since most people, including those devoted NASCAR and MMA fans, enjoy seeing a nice car wreck every now and then. The more fire the merrier right?
I don’t think families are any different.
So, when you start to see a few sparks fly from those olden days of yesteryear, feel free to ask someone around you for a small glass of water.
If you’re real lucky, that will be all that’s needed to get the party back on course.
