Turkey Day Traditions
My family tried to start a tradition of bowling after Thanksgiving dinner. The wheels came off after two successful years when no one brought it up and we just didn't go. The tradition got off to a rough start as well. We all piled into cars the first year and drove to the bowling alley. The families laced-up rental shoes and chose bowling balls. We must have been a couple frames into the first game when my brother-in-law's mom arrived. No one had noticed that she wasn't in any of the cars when we drove out, and she'd been left behind. Her husband didn't seem particularly bothered then, but I guess he was pretty upset when she forgot about him after they'd attended a play together at the performing arts center a few weeks later.
