There was an incident, two decades ago, involving me embarrassing myself in a fancy restaurant. All over my leather bomber jacket. Then there was another incident, resulting in my husband waking up and groggily asking me, "Why does my finger hurt so much?" Since I no longer drank Sambuca, I was able to solve the mystery. "Because I watched you and your friend order Sambuca shots, dip your fingers in, light them on fire, down the shots and blow out your fingers? Twice?"

Sambuca is evil.

Getting involved in your in-law's internal family dynamic issues = bad idea. I'm just sayin'. Let your partner deal with them - they are his/her family, and thus his/her problem and you will never understand them like he/she does.

Another hint: if you find yourself starting to feel a little smug about the level of dysfunction your partner's family is currently exhibiting, just remember that time your brother punched out your dad's windshield.

Immersing yourself in a giant fishbowl for a week. Yaargh.
