Another Holiday Checked Off

turkey
Every holiday deserves its own tribute, so I’ve taken liberties with the classic 12 Days of Christmas to describe my first Thanksgiving dinner party here in Champaign.
On my first official holiday, my family gave to me:
12 food-stained napkins,
11 temperature complaints,
10 types of side dishes,
9 complimentary food reviews,
8 hungry diners,
7 days of meal prep and shopping,
6 vows to hit stores on black Friday,
5 types of desserts,
4 hours of actual dining,
3 hours of sleep after too much wine,
2 stressed-out, puking kitties
And a fur ball as big as a tree.
