Thanksgiving morning for Laura and Fox begins with a healthy breakfast for Laura, and leftover Chinese food for Professor Fritz Fox. Also, he smokes while eating, very unhygenic.
The work begins when Professor Fox pulls out Laura’s latest book proposal to correct her unspeakably bad grammar. “Her use of dangling participles is sickening.” Says the Professor.
After looking at Professor Fox’s notes and firm exhortations on the importance of transitional phrases, Laura goes to her trusty computer and makes the appropriate edits. Of course, Professor Fox supervises.
But fortunately for all, it’s not a day for working until the wee hours. It’s a holiday! So, Laura and Professor Fox Make a turkey to share with their loved ones.
And as Laura carves the bird with an alarming large knife, she asks Professor Fox, “Now what do you think of my grammar?”
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my human and woodland friends!
