However, he may gently affirm comments you made about the family without being nasty, like agreeing that Uncle Tom will fall asleep after 3 beers. If needed, can he pull himself (or you) away from the family drama, should it erupt? Can he laugh at the odd characters found in every family tree (even his own), or does he get defensive?
