Further Thanksgiving Plans

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today's contributors are: Ann, Tabitha

Subject: More Thanksgiving Plans

Ann is making a pot of tomato sauce for dinner, and Tabitha is nearby, studying for a test.

Going home again this year Tabitha? Got a big meal planned?”

Actually, I'm staying here. I know it's not that much money on Metro North, but I was just home last weekend and my mother rarely remembers that I'm a vegetarian and makes almost all the food with chicken broth or meat of some kind.”

Bummer. I'm looking forward to going home. We're having deep fried turkey, and my father makes a delicious stuffing.”

Deep fried turkey just sounds so disgusting. I'm just going to miss my uncle's apple pie. I'll have to have him make one for my birthday.”

I think most of us are staying home. So you should have some company at least. Just don't let Scott try to cook anything.”

I know better than that. I think I'll make a pumpkin pie.”

Sounds terrific. I'm sure there won't be any left when I get back though.”

Probably not with those two vultures staying.”

Wow, you're right. I'm the only one leaving aren't I? Don't have too much fun without me.”

I'll try to restrain myself. I'll probably end up doing some schoolwork anyway.”

Oh poo. You can't do schoolwork on a holiday, that's just wrong.”

If you stopped drilling me about thanksgiving plans and pies, maybe I could study now.”

Oh? It's my fault is it?”

Probably mine for trying to study out here. I figured it'd be semi-quiet since the guys and Sara went to the bar to watch the Islanders-Rangers game.”

Well, it is quiet. I don't need to talk if you don't want me to.”

Can I turn the tv off? It's just Ace of Cakes anyway, and Frank has this episode on DVD.”

Frank has the Ace of Cakes DVD? That's kind of weird.”

It was probably just an impulse buy. Him and Sara are not very good at saving money.”

You know what? Forget it. I'm too hungry and the sauce smells too good to study. Let's watch Ace of Cakes!”

It's a good thing my mother is no longer alive, she would drive into the city from our home on Long Island, to bring you all to her table for Thanksgiving. She HATED the idea of people being alone (or in small groups) for holidays. She always threatened to go out and pull people off the streets so she would have at least double digits at her table for the holidays.

That being said, one of the best Thanksgivings I had in recent years was a "Friends Thanksgiving" where several of us (I think there were about a dozen of us) all got together at one house and had Thanksgiving Dinner (it was really Veteran's Day Dinner) before we all went off to share the holidays with our families. It was very nice.

Before my wife and I were married and she was single, she went on a "holiday plan" with some friends of ours. Paul is ex-military and was used to not being around family at the holidays, so often celebrated with friends.

You guys should all just get together and have a blow out Thanksgiving Dinner. At least there will be lots of dessert (also a prerequisite at my mother's tables).

Gobble, Gobble.
