Just got back from a very mixed experience ................ I think that my reference to the possible positives of eating dirt shut him up because really what do you say to someone who wants to eat dirt? (Not that I do or was aiming to suggest I did, but it was frustrating.)
I don't want to spend Thanksgiving there. I usually do, but I really don't want to spend another meal with that kind of berating. At no point did I say why I didn't want turkey or cheese or anything, just turned it down. But apparently turning it down was enough to get this weirdly aggressive response.
