Thanksgiving in America

November 23, 2005 at 3:22pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in 625 Elm Street

The Missus works in Crete with several relatively recent immigrants and their families. My wife asked one woman if she planned to cook a turkey for Thanksgiving. The woman replied in her heavy accent:

“No! I said to my sisters, who work at [a meatpacking plant], ‘What is the point of coming to America, finally getting a day off, and spending the whole day cooking? No, we are going to Lincoln to eat at a real restaurant.”

And lo, a new family tradition is born. Priceless.
