"Over the river and through the woods to grandmothers house we go." Does that "Thanksgiving" song sound familiar? My sister and I used to sing it on the way to my grandparent's house every November. We used to get really excited about seeing all of our relatives and enjoying good food with them.We had a ton a fun for the most part, but occasionally a friendly family feud would occur because no one wanted to carve the turkey.
Ultimately, the individual with the carving knife in his or her hand is a lot like being the quarterback in a high pressure Thanksgiving Day football game. There's 30 seconds left on the clock, you're on the 2 yard line, and you have a chance to win the game. If you get in the end zone, you'll be hailed a hero. On the other hand, if you get stopped at the 1 yard line and fail to get the touchdown, you may feel like you let your entire team down; even worse you could get benched.
When you become the designated turkey carver, you automatically assume an immense responsibility. Your entire family is depending on you to bring one home for the team. If you fail, and serve up a pathetic looking turkey, you may lose your dignity and your first string position. If you want score a winning touchdown on Thanksgiving Day, watch the pre-game tape first.
