PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – For many people, Thanksgiving is a time when the whole family gets together and there are some who need to mentally prepare for that.

Some folks say they’re getting emotionally ready for their big Thanksgiving get-togethers and the personal questions they expect family members to fire at them.

(Woman): “Sometimes they grill me.”

(Man): “Have you gained weight?  Are you gonna have any more children?”

(Woman): “When am I gonna get married to my boyfriend?”

(Man): “Are you greyer than the last time I saw you?”

(Woman): “Do I have a boyfriend yet or why am I not married, no kids?”

(Man): “And when am I gonna bring a date to dinner.”
Reporter: “How do you answer that one?”
(Man): “When I find the right lady.”

This woman says, “pass the potatoes” is an excellent response for any question you don’t want to answer: “I think the food is a fabulous distraction, it seems to always work for us.”

While this woman prefers the direct approach: “You mind your business!”
Reporter: “You just say it like it is!”
Woman: “You mind your business, that’s what I’m going to say!”
