Psychologist Lisa Tamour inspired households to try to make doubtlessly uncomfortable household conditions “fun,” by providing appetizers in a safer, open surroundings at their properties, she stated on an appearance on “CBS Mornings” on Wednesday.

“This is tough because people are all over the map on this, and all over the map with their risk tolerance,” Tamour stated. “But the rapid tests have made this a lot easier because whatever people’s vaccination status is, we can actually confirm safety on the spot.”

“If the situation feels weird, maybe make it kind of fun,” Tamour stated. “And say we’re going to start with hors d’oeuvres in the garage, you know we’ll have drinks, we’ll do our rapid tests and then come on in, right?”

Show hosts cracked up on the unusual suggestion.

“You can make it playful, make it fun,” she continued, “and then be able to enjoy the holiday because you’re not worried about safety.”

Social media customers had been fast to ridicule Tamour’s Thanksgiving plans.

“If you follow any of this advice your family is lame and the food is bland and dry. Scientific fact,” consumer Larry Williams tweeted.

“I would definitely politely decline and go somewhere else. This is insanity,” one other said.
