For the Thanksgiving Holiday, I went with four close friends to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. We re-enacted the movie’s climactic duel scene while we waited for our food at Jerry’s Famous Deli.
These two crazy guys were sitting right across from me. The younger man kicked off his shoes and leaned over on the bench like he was laying on his couch at home. He was wearing shorts and kept opening and closing his legs, so that we’d all have a clear view of his personal business. The older man picked up the bottle of mustard, opened it, and then started eating from it. Later, when they’d finished their meal, the older man took the lid off the salt, and poured into the younger man’s glass of water. The younger man stirred up the water with his fork and then drank it. Throughout all this, the two never stopped talking to each other.
My Thanksgiving supper consisted of turkey & gravy, dressing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and something called “California Blend” that keeps showing up on my plate whenever the menu says there will be “steamed vegetables”.
