In which I share what I overheard at the “kids’ table" on Thanksgiving…
My 21-year old cousin was home from college for Thanksgiving break. He was asked the normal 20 questions about his college, his classes, his plans for winter break and, of course, his “long distance” girlfriend. We had the following exchange:
-Yeah, I don’t mind that she’s not around. When she comes to visit it is such a hassle because she always wants to talk n’ stuff.
At which point my brother-in-law chimed in with the oh-so-helpful quip:
-Not if you know where to get ‘em.
Next year remind me to limit the conversation to how delicious the yams are.
