You ma'am get the Shiny Spine Theme Song performed by a marching band, cheerleaders and baton twirlers

GEH For The Win!!!

Hah! Now I have "76 Trombones" in my head!   LOL!

And way to go with that spine o' steel! :)

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.

LOL! That's because you took away the joy out of her only topic of conversation! Hopefully she'll discover a newspaper and will be able to discover new things to talk about.

I love that instead of allowing her to make you feel bad, you stood your ground and refused to let her poison darts hit their mark. Great job!

Good for you, OP.

So she harps on you for what she sees as a vice, when she has one of her own (smoking)....interesting.

congrats! The hedgehogs are cute. And not so horribly expensive!

And great that Aunt Bitterhag was shut down. It would be fun to see if she dials it back with other people as well.

(and remember to sit so that you cannot see her and her baleful glare; don't let that be part of your day any more than it has to)

First off, the hedgehog measuring cups  -  cute beyond words.

Second, nicely done with the bitter old aunty.  Heh.  Well, played indeed.

Wonderful news! And yes, the hedgies are super-twee and precious - and would look SO CUTE next to my other oddly-assorted tablewear and other kitchen goodies. Off to the mall!

Thank you for the link, I now know what to get my firend for her birthday.  She bakes constantly and adores anything hedgehog.
Auntie needs fuel, black coffee and a side car.
