Because she knows that her family “are a CURIOUS bunch”, New York-based comedian Mary Beth Barone gets ahead of their game and sends them an informational pamphlet about “everything [they] don’t actually need to know but will eventually ask”.
“I knew once I mentioned it to one person, everyone would have questions,” she said. “So instead of answering them all in a flurry, I decided I’m just gonna foresee the line of questioning.”
She came up with a pamphlet titled, “I’m Going on a Date While We’re on Vacation,” made around 15 copies, and passed them around. She shared pictures of the pamphlet on Twitter on Wednesday, where it quickly took off.
