Thanksgiving Emergency

Flickr user tinyfroglet

This anecdote may have come from Eleanor Roosevelt’s guide to etiquette. She described giving a dinner party in her Hyde Park cottage. The server brought a roast turkey to the table and through some mishap, the bird landed on the floor. After the mess was picked up, Mrs. Roosevelt turned to the server and said, “Tell cook to send in the other one.”
