Here comes Uncle Ed. Your mother has invited him again, even after what happened last year. “He’s my brother,” she’s explained, and so now you have to remind your spouse, your partner, your boyfriend or your girlfriend of the rules. You’ve already spelled out, in one word, your policy on Uncle Ed and social media: “Don’t.” Now you have to talk about Uncle Ed and Thanksgiving. “Don’t take the bait. And don’t let down your guard until the football game, because if you make it to the football game, you know you’re safe.”
