i got a call last night from an odd number, it was from the army base and i thought my brother got in trouble. no it was for my sil, it was her 3 brothers asking me to be in on the surprise, and asked me to not mention them but make sure she has enough plates for thanksgiving......idk how to do that, im not a very good lier. how would you say it? because she'll ask who the 3 people are (she puts out names on the table so we know where we're sitting) help!

    Tell her you want lots of leftovers. Seating arrangements can be sorted out again after they arrive.

    you ( and maybe one other person) make sure yourself that there is extra food- meaning if you have to make/buy whatever

    Yes- this is what they meant, the actual place settings can be put out later. Don't tell her- it's a surprise, just bring some extra food.

    Yep, this is what I would do. I'm not sure how you would say "make sure there's enough for 3 other grown men".
