Im sure alot of people out there have relatives that they "hide" from every year before the Thankgiving meal.

So where do ya'll hide? And why do you hide from this particular relative?

I usually escape either outside or, if really desperate, into the basement with my uncles.
And in my case, its not from one particular person...I hide from them all at some point.

Happy Turkey Day Ya'll!

I have an uncle who always takes "nips" out of his flask in the bathroom. By 3pm everyone is trying to avoid his long drunk stories by taking walks in large groups outside.

I only hide when we have it with the inlaws and I usually go to the basement with the kids (see, kids come in handy!) or in the kitchen to clean/cook!

No reason to tell you all why I hide from them...you've heard it all before!

I used to paddle my canoe to the middle of the lake where no one could get me.

If my wife's family (28 in all, crammed into one house) had their way, they'd sit in the house and discuss flanges, decorating, accounting practices, and uber-conservative politics around the clock for 5 days.

To prevent my pulling a Dukes Of Hazzard and spinning out of the driveway, spraying gravel everywhere by Friday morning, my wife has learned to schedule little outings.

On Friday, we go to see an exhibit of Chinese terra cotta figures at this cool museum in Atlanta.

On Saturday, under the pretense of buying Lotto tickets, I'll go sit in the relative quiet of a bookstore for about two hours.

Frequent walks are good, too. And I can always retreat to our bedroom, pretending to have work. If you write for a living, you can always have work to do.
