Do You Feel What I Feel?

| Related | December 24, 2013

(I’m at my parents for dinner. My mother and I are drinking red wine.)

Me: “I can’t drink much more of this, it makes me feel sleepy.”

Mum: “Oh, that’ll be the sedatives!”

Me: “WHAT?!”

Mum: “Oh, I mean the same sort of things that are in turkey. They are the ones that make you feel drowsy! It’s why you shouldn’t have red wine and turkey on Christmas Day; it makes you go to sleep!”

Me: “Depending on the family, that’s not a bad way to spend Christmas.”
