As you may know, I am hosting the family holiday gathering at my house in Birmingham this year. Why are you laughing? Stop laughing! I'm sure it will be fine. Originally I said we would just have dessert, because I did not want you to taste my first turkey. Now I am thinking Publix probably makes a fine turkey, so I would love for us to do the usual lunchtime gathering.
E-mail from mom:
I can't believe you're doing this!! You are so brave!! and so sweet!!
E-mail from aunt:
I think you are the bravest person I have ever known. We will all be there feeling guilty.
E-mail from oldest cousin:
This is because you never got to sit at the big table, isn’t it?
