Wondering...

...what's the kindest, most loving way to tell one's mother, "Your old-people church functions are not my bag. Your friends are creepy and entirely too huggy. Unless there is an open bar, I am not interested in attending a Christmas barbecue 'banquet' with a Christian comedian who compares his comedy stylings to that of Ray Stevens as the night's entertainment. Peace out."?

Bad news: I don't think there IS a way.

Well, Sars would tell you to say, "No, thank you."

And leave it.

I find that rarely works, though.

Ditto Jo - "We can't make it. Sorry." Repeat. You know she'll never stop asking ... might as well just be unavailable.

Buy the Wii and say you're having too much darn fun playing Rock Band to tear yourself away from home.

Honey, you've got to get out more!
Start a club, becomea professional, weekend paparazzi and you have to be out "stalking" 20-foe, or, if you want to keep it real, simply say, "Mom, that's just not how Gin is Juiced rolls!"
