My sister-in-law’s birthday always falls during the week of Thanksgiving, so once we’ve finished with Turkey Day we shift gears into birthday celebration mode.
We’re honoring her with a special dinner tonight, and various family have been assigned different tasks to assist with its preparation.
My husband and father-in-law were dispatched to purchase salad ingredients, but the latter was concerned that the birthday girl would not be involved in any of the decisions.
“Shouldn’t she be choosing what she wants?”, he asked?
“No”, replied my husband. “She’s outsourced the decisions to me, and the funding to you.”
