My ma sets aside a plate of fat trimmed from the turkey.
I sez, “Look! A mountain of deliciousness!” And the fat thus quivered gelatinously.
My ma sez, “Don’t do it.”
I sez, “Alarck! Where did it all go? The plate is empty quite suddenly!”
My ma sez, “…”
My brother sez, “Charlie… that is so disgusting.”
And the fat thus quivered within me.
