Overheard on Thanksgiving Morning

This morning there were dozens of people on the assembly line at the Empire State Plaza, prepping meals for the big Equinox turkey day feed. They were filling foil containers with food that would be Thanksgiving dinner for 9000 people later in the day.

The crew scooped potatoes, grabbed handfuls of ham and turkey, and doled out piles of stuffing, all in careful portions.

In one of the Plaza bathrooms, at 6:30am, there was a guy with all his belongings spread out. He was washing his hair in the sink when one of his buddies walked in. “Cold out there, today.”

The guy at the sink thought about that for a moment while he dried his hair.

“It may be cold, but I still think it’s a beautiful morning.”
