Thanksgiving is on Tuesday (and a recipe)




One November afternoon, my "bubble-headed" friend had a question to ask me. Sometimes, I think Dax is a few sandwiches short of a picnic and/or his elevator doesn't reach the top floor. However, he thinks it's an admirable quality. Dax usually gets mad when I refer to him as a "blond." Who wants to be known as an airhead?

Anyway, sitting in Starbucks enjoying a cup of java, Dax excitedly gave me a run down of his Thanksgiving holiday plans. I managed to act interested in his plans of travel, drinking, sex and more sex for the holidays.

After ten minutes of listening to his holiday agenda, Dax finally asked, "So, what are you doing for Thanksgiving?"
I replied, "Whatever it is - it certainly won't be as exciting and as sex-filled as yours."
"Don't be funny."
"I'm not being funny. I'm just saying," I offered.
"You really need to get out more and not be so boring, Charles."
"Perhaps, you're right, Dax."
Pausing for a few moments and narrowing his eyebrows, Dax asked, "Wait a minute. What day is Thanksgiving on?"
"Tuesday. Thanksgiving is on Tuesday," I replied with a straight face. (I couldn't help myself. I know it was wrong.)
As though a light bulb had illuminated a room, Dax announced, "Yeah! That's right - it's on Tuesday!" He paused for another moment and asked, "Are you sure?"
"Yes," I replied with great conviction.
"Okay. I believe you," Dax said.
I thought, "Mission Accomplished!" for calling me boring.

This was one of Daddy's favorite recipes for Cornbread Stuffing:

1 package of cornbread stuffing mix
2 onions
4 celery stalks
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons dried sage, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup of uncooked popcorn

Mix above ingredients and place inside the turkey's cavity. Cook until the popcorn blows the turkey's ass across the room.

Until next week...keep praising His name!
