A holiday thing that drives me crazy. My answers to the usual questions axed me during the holidays by those clueless: Yes, my family lives far away. No, I'm not going up there over the holidays. Sure, I miss them. Yes, it's been a while since I've been up there. Yes, I probably should go see them pretty soon. Yes, I do talk to them on occasion. Yes, I miss them. Yes, they send me cards. On and on and on and on. It's weird, people find out your family lives 1000 miles away and they think they have free license to grill you into a mild depression.
