Dear Blake,

I have the holiday season blues. My family thinks I’m weird and doesn’t want be around me, my co-workers can’t stand me, and I don’t have any friends. What do you suggest I do for Thanksgiving?

Dear Peggy,

I know of a number of people just like you. I’d invite you over to my place for Thanksgiving, but I’d be afraid that you would actually show up. I hope this helps.
