In the past, we have hosted a big dinner for both my and my wife's sides of the family. This year, my brother hosted lunch for my side of the family, and we have a dinner for my wife's side.
After a lot of food and drink today, I would have changed my score to a 6. But, as T-Al pointed out in a study that I have also read, people have a natural happiness level that they tend to revert to. Watching TV game shows, my wife and I often said to each other that we would be very boring contestants; we would not know to jump up and down when winning like people always do on TV. Of course we would never apply, and then we would never be selected either.
In fact, I just thought of a sad love song, but I shall exercise self-restraint and will post it only after the holidays are over.
