“Who do you expect to visit for Christmas?”
“Why, all the usuals: Gramps, Granny, the cousins, and Mom’s brothers and sisters.”
“What do you look forward to?”
“The highly competitive and minimally charitable plethora of board games. Except that Mom’s oldest brother frequently hides the deed to Boardwalk, thinks the Rook can move diagonally, and insists that the losers partake of regular helpings of fruitcake.”
“Oh, dear, I’m afraid that your criticisms are highly avuncular.”
Avuncular: of or pertaining to an uncle.
