I asked my Sister if she wanted me to give her a hand this around the kitchen this
She said no.
Who couldn’t use an extra set of hands when making a big meal.
So I called her again and said I would love to bake some cookies…how did that sound?
Great she says.
Wonderful I tell her.
I just love to make Gingerbread Cookies I reminded her.
She asked me if I wouldn’t mind making them with heads this time.
I always make them with heads I laughed.
Attaching the gingerbread heads to the gingerbread bodies would be a nice touch she says-and it would be something new for me, wouldn’t that be nice she asked.
Sure, I think I could really ENJOY baking boring cookies.
So this morning I sent my Sister an e-mail.
I asked if I was still banned from carving the Turkey.
Damn straight, was her speedy reply.
I tell one silly story about a dissection class I took while carving the Christmas Turkey and I get forced to use plastic SPOONS for the rest of my freaking life at family holiday meals.
Some people have NO sense of humor.
There must be something I could bring to dinner I said to my sister in a phone call this evening
that would not make
the people in our family think about things without a pulse and smelling like formaldehyde.
Not a chance says my Sister says after a very long pause.
I don’t know what your Thanksgiving will be like this year, but apparently
will be dining with a bunch of weirdos.
What can I say
I hope your
Thanksgiving is as interesting and fun
