So my family, despite being comfortably privileged*, are the poor branch of the extended relatives (on both sides). This leads to awesome ridiculousness like my grandma pulling out the fur coat and fancy hat, in rather mild weather, and hiding all signs of slovenliness (like my awesome but very tarnished silver) 'cause her niece-in-law and the niece's sister are visiting from Moscow. My mom and I are mostly just cracking up at the absurdity, and incredibly grateful that the cleaning lady comes every other Monday (I mentioned that I'm privileged, right?). So, what's your families brand of crazy when the relatives come to town?
