Hmm…Boy howdy, I am seeing some “totally sick of Thanksgiving and all that food” faces. And some of the churches in the area are still serving Thanksgiving dinner!
I had my Thanksgiving dinner at Catholic Charities, of course. Practically everybody down there is like family. And, oh my God, did they act like it too! Fussing and pushing and carrying on so, that I was asking if I could have Jack Daniels in my gravy-before we even got in the door. No sooner did they quash one squabble than another one would break out. That’s when I asked, “Can I have Jack Daniels in my hot cocoa too?” Let me tell you, somebody needed to bring boxing gloves and a referee down there. That would have kept the fighting fair, and us entertained. Along about the third squabble that broke out, I was going to ask for some Jack Daniels in my green bean casserole, but it occurred to me that the Catholics only drink wine. So, I said, “Scratch the Jack Daniels in the gravy and the hot chocolate, and just give me a safety helmet in case the rolls aren’t soft, and a food fight breaks out.” LOL! Luckily, everybody was too hungry to throw anything edible. I cannot wait for Christmas dinner!
