Thanksgiving, a time for family, gratitude, and, of course, a little drama. This year, our storyteller (33f) found herself in a pickle when her pregnant sister-in-law, Becky (31f), sent a list of demands that would turn their traditional Thanksgiving upside down. No turkey, no alcohol, and no evening games? Is this a reasonable request from an expecting mother, or an over-the-top demand that spoils the holiday for everyone else? Let's delve into this juicy tale of family conflict and holiday traditions. 🦃🍷🎲
