Anyway, it's not really the turkey that's important but the idea of a turkey. It's like having christmas without a christmas tree (err, I think that's been going for at least a half decade or so running) or easter without an easter egg hunt (2 decades on this one). Well, so my family and I have always been sort of spotty on following holiday traditions, but it's still sorta sad when one of the few remaining falls by the wayside.
I guess if I really cared I could have always run and gotten a turkey and stuffed it in the oven but it just wouldn't be my style. I've never been one of those people who seek out solutions and then work to see them come about. Standing back a ways and bitching about the outcome has always been more my thing.
