So I went to a very nice restaurant on Thanksgiving Day. With family I had not seen in a long time. So many things for my mind to be racing about, but what do I think of?
Well, if there are 5 appetizers, 2 soups, 2 salads, 6 entrees, and 5 desserts possible (not to mention the bar…but I didn’t even take that into account), what’s the likelihood that 2 people (there were 8 of us) got the exact same Thanksgiving dinner? Well…by the third course we had all dined our separate ways, except for two! They made it all the way to dessert, and I think had my mother ordered dessert instead of just coffee, there would have been a Thanksgiving Day miracle!
I’m thankful not because I actually chose to do the thinking about, and observing/remembering of, everyone’s meal. I’m thankful because I can think about it if I want to, and not need a calculator to multiply 5 x 2 x 2 x 6 x 5
