Thanksgiving Wouldn't Be the Same Without You

Dear Turkey Carver from 1973,

I love that my parents only bring you out once a year when it's time to carve the turkey for our Thanksgiving Eat-a-Thon. I love that you were a wedding gift that they received and they've never bothered to replace you. I love your funky funky mustard color. I love that you live in the cupboard in your original box that has yellowed over time and is just as worn as you. I love that my mom does the entire Thanksgiving meal (except for the sweet potatoes, which are my specialty), and yet, my father stops all hors d'oeuvres eating and football watching to use you just before we eat.

Thanks for being a part of our holiday tradition...Thanksgiving just wouldn't be the same without you!

That's so funny! My aunt and uncle had one and I always thought they were incredibly posh when we visited their house and out came the electric knife!

OMG! My parents have that same electric knife! They also got it as a wedding gift and use it only on Thanksgiving and Christmas. I guess that was THE wedding gift back then.

i hope your parents never re-do their many when your mom glued my head together after the horse's jaw cracked it open...all the dinners there when my mom was cooking something grody...the holidays that your mom goes crazy over...can't wait till christmas!
