Haiku #88, 89 - Christmas Dinner

there is something to
be said for sticking to your
core competencies:

mom and dad and i
had a sumptuous dinner
cooked by fresh direct

I hate cooking, a trait I inherited from my mom.  Dad likes cooking holiday dinner, but he's a pain in the ass in a kitchen he's familiar with, so imagine a miniature kitchen he doesn't know.  So... I consider it money well-spent to have gotten a heat-and-eat turkey dinner delivered straight to my door on Christmas Eve.  It was yummy, and super-easy to prepare.  We hung out and relaxed and enjoyed the day in each other's company.  And Mom cleaned up (I did not inherit her affinity for cleaning.)

Merry Christmas, everyone!


  1. Meanwhile, wondering whether I am adopted??? I had fun making a turkey dinner Christmas Eve, then using the leftover turkey to make some (auto-backpat) delicious green chile/cheese/turkey tamales yesterday. The red chile/pork ones were pretty damn good too, thanks... Now if I can get two more reports translated and outta the way, today's Pie Day. Everything in moderation (or at least spread over several days), even core competencies...
    Love ya!

  2. well, there's gotta be one in every family... ;)
