What Worked

At dinner with the family last night, when the talk turned, as it inevitably does, to how bad mom is being for ordering her one order of onion rings all year, and how dad wants to stop eating french fries, and you remember Super-Size Me? Fries are so bad, oh man, it's the fries that kill you...

"I'm not really interested in discussing food we're not eating, while we're eating."

Everyone sort of laughed, and magically, the subject changed. Not too confrontational, not a big fight, something that did what it was supposed to! Hurrah!

  1. It drives me crazy when my family talks about what's "healthy" and what's not while we're eating. Good for you for opening your mouth without feeling like you just put your foot in it.
