S5 Ep453: Passive-Aggressive Comebacks for Thanksgiving + Funny Old Apocalypse Predictions

It’s almost here: that Thursday in November where we gather together, give thanks, and dodge invasive questions about our love life and rude insinuations about our political beliefs. To help cope, Kathleen has some comebacks you can have in your back pocket when Aunt Helen has tee many martoonies. Then, Bethany is fascinated by people predicting the end of the world, and there’s something kind of comforting about knowing it’s been going on since the year 66.

    The part where he mentions that he wants to be adopted by a more functional family even at 45 yrs really hits home. Really delineates how no matter how old and independent you are, you still need love and support.
