In high school my brother dated this girl for a very short time. He invited her to spend Thanksgiving dinner with our family. Everything was late, and so we ended up eating at like 6PM instead of lunch time. This had some of us feeling a little awkward. Then the new girlfriend came in with Nate. I still don’t know why, but my family and the girl ate the meal in almost complete silence. My family talks A LOT – all the time. We talk to strangers and anyone, but for some reason we all felt awkward and made things worse by not talking. My brother’s relationship ended shortly after Thanksgiving.
