Your girlfriend’s family. Your friends. Clooney.
Odds are, at some point in your life, one of these will invite you to Thanksgiving. (Even better odds if the last two are redundant.)
And there you’ll be, ready to make small talk and compliment the hell out of some casserole, when you’ll hear it: a polite question that’s really more of a demand. Would you like to carve the turkey?
The answer, of course, is yes. But unless you come prepared, things could go horribly wrong.
