      I would go with the old favorite ‘You’re not the Boss of me!’

      I’m so devastated by Trump being cheated out of the presidency that I’m paralyzed.

      I really don’t. It’s the perfect time to get out with the camera when there are no people around. I much prefer to be out hugging trees than sitting around trying to be nice.

      If it was just me, my son and DIL, that would be different. However, one person is freakin’ flying in from Florida today.
      No thanks. I’ll pass.
      Turkey’s not worth dying over.

      My son’s now REALLY worried because of the massive spike in COVID-19 country-wide.
      I’m just hoping they come out unscathed, virus free.

      Our older relatives here just don’t want to risk it, and we don’t blame them. We may have at most one guest with our immediate family, and if there’s anyone at risk, it’ll most likely be him. With two people working out in the public, our house is high risk for the vulnerable.

      And we’re not such assholes we’d demand they come over. Who does that?

      We washed all our sweat pants and fleece tops and have declared PLHW aka Pant-Less Holiday Weekend until Monday. Too many local and close reports about people who tested positive but had no symptoms and continue to go out and about. WTF! I trust very few people right now about this both family and friends.

      Our good friend and neighbor is our local Margaret Houlihan, 66yo and 40-year MIL, ER, and ICU nurse and she comes home from the University of Minnesota Hospital every day in tears past two weeks. Bad-ass military battle-axe lifer nurse and leader. I won’t repeat her stories here but they’re terrifying.

      If you’re offended by our absence, that is your problem not ours get over yourselves.
