Turkey Dysfunction

You would have to know my Dad to think this is really funny. I have been drinking wine all day without food. Dad has been hitting the Scotch. What’s the logical thing to do? Give me a video camera and him a carving knife.

Note that both mine and Lisa’s husbands are hiding out in another room playing video games with the kids. They are smart.

If anyone knows Jason B., I can pretty much guarantee that he will do “the laugh” over this one.

For my brother-in-law who reads my blog, please note how this holiday experience is so different from the one I married into that I often feel like I am on a different, and much quieter, planet when I visit your parents. (I read his blog when I understand what it is he is talking about, but the Ruby programming language, which he writes whole entire, published and searchable-on-Amazon books on, is a little over my head. You should buy a copy for each of your friends.)

    Poor Lyle! I don’t blame him for not liking that platter; it was ready to dump turkey juice (and the bird, for that matter) all over him. POS!

    Steph, that is not Lyle, that is my Dad with the turkey. Lyle is the BIL. I think my sister will agree that holiday dinners aren’t worth the trouble.

    Jason, Cecil IS Clark. Guess that makes me . . . Juliette Lewis?

    Yep, you are Juliette Lewis.

    Sorry, Cecil. Didn’t mean to mix up the names.
