Every Thanksgiving you can’t help but jump with joy imagining that full course meal since you’ve basically been living off cereal and ramen noodles for the past five months. However, you have to face the “fam” first. You’ve missed them so much but really wish you could just hide in the bathroom until they say “dinners ready.” Then when Papa asks about that boyfriend you’ve never had you can just stuff your face with a roll and say I’m getting seconds and hope he forgets by the time you get back. In reality, they never forget and you need to just face the facts that your family just wants to know everything about your life and ask you a million questions. So be thankful this thanksgiving that your family still ask you these annoying questions because one day you’ll surprisingly miss it.
1. “So do you have a boyfriend?”
Sorry, but no. I haven’t had one for the past 19 years, Papa, what makes you think I have one now?
2. “How are classes going?”
The typical answer you’ll reply with is “good” but in reality you want to say “I think about dropping out every day and I don’t think I can survive another, I feel like I’m dying on the inside so thanks for reminding me of the hell that I’m living in grandma, good to see you too.”
3. “Do you go to a lot of parties?”
Sorry Aunt Debbie, but I’m not going to answer this. You can answer this yourself, next question, please.
4. “How are your grades? You must be doing so well”
If you consider studying for 9 hours then barely passing well then yeah I’m doing well, sometimes.
5. “Do you miss high school?”
HA, nope. Now where’s the mashed potatoes?
