Against my better judgement, I made a quick run to Food Lion today to pick up some dinner and breakfast items for visiting relatives. I'm standing in the checkout line, surrounded by people whose carts are filled with yams, pumpkin puree, turkeys, cranberries, and pie crusts. I feel all eyes turn toward me as I unload my cart - taco dinner kit, Cheez-its, frozen waffles, and an orange.
I wanted to turn to everyone and explain this wasn't the actual food I'd be serving tomorrow, but I sensed that might make the situation worse. So I kept my mouth shut.
Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!
