What am I gonna say when Uncle Larry brings up his spicy political thoughts!? 

What about when Aunt Mary tries to get me to join her pyramid scheme that she swears is not a pyramid scheme!? 

Grandma is inevitably going to be asking when she’s going to get more grandchildren. Can’t wait.

No more hiding under the table! It can be dusty down there…

How you use these questions are up to you! Maybe just pick a few of your favorites and put them in your Notes app for easy reference when things start going south.
