Reprinted from 2008 … for my brother-in-law Jon.
So it’s Thanksgiving morning and we’ve got the turkey in the oven cooking, and my Mom, sister, and I have planned the side dishes, bread, dessert … and then my brother-in-law asks, “Are we having mashed potatoes?”
Some years we have mashed potatoes but most years we have macaroni and cheese, which is what was planned this year. I laughed and asked him did he want mashed potatoes? He just laughed.
Then I slipped out of the kitchen to the office to check my email … and there was an e-card sent by him, his wife who is my sister, and their daughter — SWAC Niece. I opened it … and burst out laughing. Mashed potatoes, indeed!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
