    I’m impressed it didn’t land on HER foot.

    He has no sense of humor.

    Of course he does — but only when it happens to someone else!

    At least she can’t complain that it is a 24 pounder.

    That’s because she knows how to handle it. John is NOT a shopper. :P

    He’ll laugh at it when he thinks about it a moment.
    .
    Or if he’s on pain killers, it may be sometime later when he laughs about it. They affect people in different ways.

    I wasn’t in much of a laughing mood when I got burned by a deep fryer. The demerol wasn’t much fun, either. The doc was amazed that I was lucid and able to ask coherent questions, as opposed to knocked out cold. The codeine they supplied just made me throw up so I only took it twice. The second time told me: no more opiates!

    Is anyone else remembering the Roald Dahl story “Lamb to the Slaughter?”

    I don’t remember Lamb to the Slaughter, but I loved most of Roald’s reads.

    Competing to find the biggest turkey was always great fun for my kids. We used to call it the hunt for the Thanksgiving Pteranadon.
    Good times.

    she didn’t say anything that he wouldn’t have said to her if the roles were reversed.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    The one thing I remember about my brother’s cast (he had injured his knee playing soccer), was the way it itched and how he used Mom’s knitting needles to reach into the cast to scratch. By the time he went back to the doc for a check up, the cast was full of holes — and he had to have a new one!

    Strong woman Elly, carrying that 25-pound turkey and all the other groceries. And she didn’t drop it on her foot.

    “Gesture of good will” or “We don’t want you to sue us so we’ll give you the turkey. Besides we can’t sell it anyway because of the giant foot-shaped dent in it and all the blood on it.”
