to my crazy relatives.

I look forward to getting together tomorrow. Of course, I expect a few of you to annoy the heck out of me with things that you do. So I want you to know about my new strategy.

I've decided that, rather than getting aggravated, I will laugh. It would be rude to do that all the time, so you'll probably see me smiling a lot (and laughing inside). Just so you know that I'm smiling and laughing more than usual not because I'm drunk, but because it's a better way of dealing with relatives than getting po'd -- or drunk, or po'd and drunk ;o)

And, since I'm sure that I can annoy you, feel free to laugh at me.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Jack
