Surely, every year, this must happen to someone, somewhere. It’s Thanksgiving day, still early enough that no one’s ready for dinner yet, but the hour is close – maybe a couple of hours or so till the finishing touches need to be on the table.
Then someone realizes that they forgot the cranberry sauce, the Cool Whip, or the mini marshmallows for the sweet potato casserole. Always the most obvious solution! Your mother or spouse is franticly rushing around the kitchen. Anxiety sets in.
“Any retailers open?! Two hours until dinner! Is anyone not wearing shoes? If you have the keys, please tell me where they are. Someone needs to run to the store – Quick! I don’t see how we can have Thanksgiving dinner without cranberry sauce and turkey and stuffing.” Please don’t fret.
