Just because you have adjusted the napkin holders and rearranged the assigned seating chart 300000x doesn’t mean you are OCD: it means you are a GG. Conditioned from the ripe age of 0 to ensure perfection for every holiday makes behavior such as the above mentioned totally normal. And the fact that you basically have everything from how to position the cocktail napkins to which linens to use in the powder room mapped out does not make you a perfectionist: it makes you an efficient GG. But if it were any other day of the year this type of behavior would absolutely certify you as not only a perfectionist but OCD. That’s why holidays like Thanksgiving work in your favor. You see, it takes one to know one. And while cooking for hours on end is not my usual day, this type of OCD’ing absolutely is. If it were any other day of the year getting up at 6am to squeeze in a Joyride class before you spend the next 10 hours cooking would sort of make every other GG hate you but not today, today it is totally acceptable. Not only does having any level of OCD work in your favor in terms of decor and preparation but it does for when it comes to the after math too. Inmore cases than not the hostess can tend to get caught up in actually hostessing and not able to enjoy one self at the holiday but being the OCD GG that you so naturally are you have already hired the caterers to ensure you get to hang with the fam. Sure, some would say that could classify as high maintenance, we say it classifies as, um, life. So wear that OCD apron with gusto GG’s, we are on team perfection and cheering you along every immaculate step of the way.
