I found myself behind an elderly couple shuffling behind their grocery cart in a very busy grocery store. We were both buying our Thanksgiving groceries. We made our way slowly down two aisles before they turned, apologized and let me pass.

On the way past, the woman told me about the guests they were expecting. She gave me a quick overview of the menu at their house. As a final thought I asked, “Do you know where the canned gravy is?”

She pointed at the aisle where the gravy would be and said, “You’re not going to cheat, are you?”

I replied, “Hey! You’re the one who knows where the canned gravy is!”

She smiled, winked and wished me a happy Thanksgiving while continuing the slow shuffle down the aisle.

I hope they and you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
