So once again it is time to make that promise.............
Raise Your Right Hand and repeat the following:
I promise, Cross my heart and hope to die,
Last year we worked for days, bringing up tables, ironing tablecloths, shopping and preparing any food that we could. I even did flower arrangements in pumpkins.
When the big day arrived we wanted everyone to eat together (for the full 8 minutes as you said). When some of the men tried to camp out in front of the football game we asked that the family sit together for the brief meal. My drunk sister-in-law wanted to start a fight with her hubby so she asked him (in a very slurred voice), “What’s the matter?”
In comes my unsuspecting husband with a nice bottle of wine to share. My brother-in-law turns on David and tells him, “Thanks a lot, Dave.” (Heaven forbid he should want a glass of wine with the meal that he worked so hard for).
So, the sister in law ends up passing out at the table – apparently she started early before coming to our house.
Thanks Mrs. S for that contribution.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU ALL!
And remember, leave some of the plumpness with the Turkey!
