Although a little early in the year for Christmas, Spending the Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat by Jen may keep you laughing until the holidays. No doubt, we have all felt this at one time or another, and although I don't mean to sound like a Grinch, sometimes you just can't wait for it to end soon enough.
It drives us to do crazy things! Like slipping off a ladder putting up the outside lights, or driving on slippery roads you wouldn't normally be out on, just to spend an evening being someplace you don't want to be.
More than often it can involve sharing a meal or more. And if numerous relatives have contributed, there isn't anything like eating an apple pie full of cat hair, that a crazy aunt made. Seriously, how could you not think about these things. Every time you visited in the past year, you often see the cats on the cupboards. Heck, I've met people who leave the food and water dishes for their cats on the cupboards and actually encourage their cats to jump up to eat.
Or it could be a young nephew or niece, with an awful cold, and his nose running so bad that you feel your body starting to float.
And the conversations! It would be a blessing if the talk could be centered around the weather, but no, people need to pry, and there is safety in numbers. Or it could be the elderly relative, who can't remember where her teeth are asking your teenage daughter if she managed to get over that awful rash she had last summer.
We are all going to remember holidays like this, and of course years later you look back on them and laugh. But if you get a copy of this book now while it's being offered for free on Amazon for a limited promotion, perhaps it will prepare you for the upcoming season. And if you take a miniature video recorder, you can use the money from Blackmail as a second source of income.
