I did it!
« on: February 14, 2013, 08:55:42 PM »
Well, I did two things, bot hof which I've been meaning to post but things are so insane with Anthony's dad and all that it keeps slipping my mind,

  First, I know I've  mentioned my sister before, and how it's all but impossible to give her a gift she will like.  Well this year at Christmas, I DID IT.  I know she likes to cook, and I know she collects hedgehog-themed stuff, so I found these : http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/home-kitchen/25797796.jsp  at a store in Big Mall.  She LOVED them.  She even brought them in from her car to show everyone at my aunt and uncle's.  Victory!


Also, I had a thread about my Aunt Bitterhag, who is always making rude comments to me about my weight; a topic about which I'm very sensitive.  I got some really good advice on that thread so at New Year's Day brunch, when she made another weight comment to me, I said (quite loudly) "Aunt Bitterhag, are you implying something about my weight??"  With every eye in the room now on her, she sputtered, "I didn't!  I didn't say that!  That isn't what I meant!"  I replied, "But you just said, 'GEH, I could fit into those pants of yours twice over!'  What DID you mean by that?"  She fumbled around for a minute looking for an answer that would cover for her rude comment, then quickly excused herself to go out for a cigarette. 

I've since seen her at a couple other family events and she eyes me balefully from across the room, but won't sit near me and other than answering me if I speak to her directly, she doesn't seem to have anything she wants to say to me.
"After all this time?"
"Always."

Double hoorays!

I'm especially liking the way you handled your Aunt.  I'll bet she was certainly surprised to be flashed by that new titanium spine of yours!!  You darned near blinded that woman!!   ;D

Excellent job! Forcing someone PA to explain themselves is a great strategy -- I'm glad it worked with your aunt.

I'm so glad to hear it! It drives me crazy to read about situations where people get away with behaviour like your aunt's!
