Try to avoid giving bad news to anyone today -- it will stir up some things that don't need to be revisited. But if you absolutely have to relay negative news or feedback right now, be as tactful as you can about it. Avoid making jokes or using humor to deflect the tension -- it will probably just backfire and make you look like you're not taking the situation seriously enough. You are skilled at diplomacy, as long as you take the time to think your words through carefully.
