let them give birth


and vaginally

   One day...
as Thanksgiving approaches, there is always the struggle between tradition and innovation in the day's menu. This is a no-holds-barred cooking incident. This year, my daughter's boredom with a predictable dinner outweighed her desire for the tasty familiar dishes. As an accommodating mother, always eager to satisfy my child's every desire on her rare visits to my home (a place where she never spent any portion of her childhood, therefore not familiar or homey to her), I searched my imagination for just the goody that would give delight.
