Because, you know, singles over age 18 are not “real” adults – Thanksgiving Letter

Because, you know, singles over age 18 are not “real” adults – Thanksgiving Letter

(Link): Thanksgiving Letter from Marney


Here is the pertinent part for this blog:

—Start Letter—

The Lisa Byron Chesterford Family

Lisa as a married woman you are now required to contribute at the adult level. You can bring an hors d’oeuvres. A few helpful hints/suggestions. Keep it very light, and non-filling, NO COCKTAIL SAUCE, no beans of any kind. I think your best bet would be a platter of fresh veggies and dip. Not a huge platter mind you (i.e., not the plastic platter from the supermarket).

—End Letter—

Hmm. So by virtue of going from single to married, Lisa is now an adult. I guess previously she brought Hot Pockets, Ramen Noodles, or Cheetos to Marney’s feast, but is now expected to bring “grown up” items? Holy moly. When will the stereotype die that marriage is what makes one into an adult? It’s an otherwise very funny letter. Do click on the link above to read the whole thing. I feel sorry for Marney’s family.

Happy Thanksgiving.
