Christmas Thank You from bitter Mother-In-Law

Christmas Thank You from bitter mother in law

Have you had to deal with a bitter in-law, especially at this sensitive time of the year?

My mother-in-law hated my guts. So much so that when she heard that I had contracted breast cancer when it was already known to have a high long-term survival rate, she sent me a Get Well card in which she had written, “…miracles can happen.” Knowing her, she was hoping to Hell that a miracle was not about to happen in my case which, given that I am still here and she is not, must be a huge disappointment to her up in Heaven or wherever else she might be.

And, how NOT to cook your Christmas turkey…

A short poem that illustrates the need to take care when choosing ingredients for your turkey stuffing. Original poet unknown, but whoever you are, I don’t envy you the job of clearing up the mess.

Christmas joke - how not to cook the turkey

Tip: be very careful what ingredients you use in the stuffing (dressing).

The turkey shot out of the oven,
And rocketed into the air.
It knocked every plate off the table,
And partly demolished a chair.

It ricocheted into a corner,
And burst with a deafening boom.
Then splattered all over the kitchen,
Completely obscuring the room.

It stuck to the walls and the windows.
It totally coated the floor.
There was turkey attached to the ceiling,
Where there’d never been turkey before.

It blanketed every appliance.
It smeared every saucer and bowl.
There wasn’t a way I could stop it.
That turkey was out of control! [Read more…]
