Night: MANIPURI-AMERICAN THANKSGIVING TURKEY DINNER.
We host. We cook. It’s the first Manipuri-American Thanksgiving Dinner.
The dining rooms looks smashing. IKEA tea-lights and all. Decorative turkeys on every table. Napkins too for a change! I seat them all, an American guest at every table.
I welcome all the hosts and talk about the turkeys, the mixed menu. Blah blah. Then Z tells us all about Thanksgiving. She’s a Good Pilgrim. But I would have added something about Pilgrims meeting Fake Indians once again. Tee hee.
And Imo’s cooked turkey is great! But the roast is dry and the turkey look all scrawny and Gandhian.
