The Funniest Thanksgiving

Friday, November 27, 2009

We did have a lovely Thanksgiving. We went to our neighbor's. It is a fun story.

They came over last week, "just chatting". They were nudging each other with their elbows, saying under their breath "YOU ask her" and "NO, YOU ask her".

Finally Ted and I got a bit restless watching this nonsense, and I said "Ok. Just come out with it. What do you want?".

Then Toby blurted out "Do you cook good turkeys and make good dressing and gravy?"

What a weird question. Ted responded with a loud "She sure DOES!".

Then they explained that they wanted to do Thanksgiving at their house, but they always make lousy turkeys, dressing and gravy. "So if we supply the turkey, would you cook it?"

It was after I agreed to it that they told us they would have a guest list of 14.

So I cooked turkey, dressing and gravy, our house smelled wonderful, and we packed it all up and across the road we go.

We walk in, carrying all our food, and there are these guests.....all sitting down in the living room, looking like they were starving, and not doing any conversation.

When they saw us, they all jumped up and cheered "The turkey is here!" and headed for the table.

Neither Ted nor I dropped the food we were hauling, even though we were laughing so loud.

Dinner was really good, the turkey was moist and cooked to perfection, the gravy without nary a lump and the dressing rich with flavor. The side dishes they supplied were wonderful.

It was one of the funniest thanksgivings we have ever had!

    It is what Thanksgiving is all about: Food (good of course), Family and Friends.

So glad that yours was a memorable one.

    I wonder how long they were waiting for the two of you to arrive with the dinner. I can just see you both laughing. I would most likely have dropped it.
