This is one of those times when I think manners can be wasted on my family. For Christmas I was given a shirt, the box labeled as coming from 2 aunts, 2 uncles and 2 cousins. The shirt is a blue, crinkled polyester button down blouse with 3 rows of ruffles on each side, and a row of lace at the waist. It's nice but not in anyway conceivable something I would wear(ok I think it's hideous, and it reminds me of the Puffy shirt from Seinfeld) Later they asked me if I liked it, and I couldn't lie so I tried to cover by saying "it's interesting" Naturally my mother and aunts picked up that I hated the blouse and immediately made my "it's interesting comment, the biggest joke of the christmas gathering. Teasing me mercilessly and then making me try the shirt on, in short doing anything and everything to embarass me over the comment and the shirt.
I wonder if they would have prefer the full on truth from me.
