51. This sounds really good to me. Or, if dinner with them simply
cannot be escaped (spousal expectations or something) -- I would suggest just staring at them fixedly, silently, with a mixture of sympathy and revulsion -- the look you probably have on your face while watching a cat cast up a hairball.

They can't help it (the in-laws OR the cat), and there's nothing you can do about it except wait for it to be over, and your participation in the ritual is in no way required . . . .
