The scene: Dad is washing dishes, Mom is getting ready to make stuffing, and I am wandering through because I remembered that Mom bought little oranges earlier and I wanted one.
Mom pokes her head in the fridge and pronounces the Words of Doom:
"Did somebody use butter yesterday?"
Silence falls over the kitchen for a moment. Then I lean towards Dad and whisper, "I think you're going to Wal-Mart."
Mom pulls her head out of the fridge. "Yeah!"
Today's Life Lesson: If you use up all the butter 2 days before Thanksgiving, then the night before Thanksgiving you will be going to Wal-Mart to get more.
