We’re having a joint birthday party for my daughters today with my family and my wife’s family. Everybody is either sitting outside or hanging out in the kitchen, but since I helped clean up for the party I need to sit with my feet up to decrease pressure on my stomach. Neither of those locations meet those needs, and nobody was interested in sitting with me, so I said screw it and went up to my bed.

Isn't this why booze was invented?
This only works if you drink. For those of us who don't, it's all polite smiles, rotating through our list of stock interjection responses to everyone else's small talk, and lots of screaming on the inside till we're allowed to leave. If there're snacks, those help give us something else to focus on, but they're not a proper defense shield.
