Last night at the gym I overhead the aerobics instructor telling a fellow classmate about the Thanksgiving dinner she was was preparing for her family and in-laws next week. "We're having it at mah house this year and Ahm gonna make what I want so we're having Thai food. I just looove Thaaaaaai food."
Said aerobics instructor is not Thai or Asian by any means but is straight up South Georgian. Not that there's anything wrong with that. And as for the Thai Thanksgiving, I guess there's nothing wrong with that either. It's a free country and I certainly don't believe you have to follow traditions if you don't want to.
But. I could only imagine her in-laws showing up for Thanksgiving dinner and having chicken sataty instead of cornbread dressing. Pumpkin pie? No, nooo....Ah didn't make any pies. But, Ah have do have Sweet Rice with Maaaango!"
