The Ghost of Thanksgiving Past:
Oh the Memories, the Mishaps…
Our fearless Nevins Library staffers have kindly contributed stories of past Thanksgiving mishaps, so if your Thanksgiving isn’t up to Norman Rockwell standards, have no fear — you are not alone!
A few Thanksgivings ago, our family had gathered together at our house. My cousin came with her two-year-old son, E. E was eating in his high chair, positioned just next to my father at the head of the dining room table. About halfway through the meal, E stopped eating and promptly threw up right on to his tray. Everyone leapt into one sort of action or another. My brother bolted for his room to avoid a chain-reaction of puking. My mother, aunt and cousin all hurried E off to the bathroom to clean him up. Other family members milled out around the room, waiting for calm to settle back down.My father? Well, he kept right on eating.∼ Amy, Teen Librarian
