It's interesting that Yolanda criticizes me for not being there in person for these gatherings. Yet, she is clearly not a fan of catty dinner conversation either. We actually have very similar reactions to drama and how we deal: we leave the table or choose not to participate in the event.
The reason I am never at these dinner parties is simple -- when the main topic of conversation is attacking and criticizing others, I choose to disengage.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
Until next time. . .
