Dear Thanksgiving Host,
Your karma stinks because every year we do this dance. I ask what can I bring. I am grateful that you are kind enough to host. But can you please just tell me what I can do!!! When you respond, just bring yourself, we know that is the start of the turkey dance. I say I want to help, you reply thank you but we are good. The endless loop of please and no just bring yourself is unnecessary.
First we know if I show up without anything I will be the post holiday topic of Mr Freeloader. Second it’s better to just generalize app or desert and let me do the rest. In the end I will over compensate by bringing both plus enough wine beer and whiskey to have the whole family buzzed for Black Friday. To end the topic, we could all avoid the turkey dance if you’d just tell me what I could bring.
