Greetings from Carrboro,
I got a TV. The thing is wildly embarrassing. It’s like 4 times the size of any screen that I’ve ever owned. And weighs about as much as a large pizza. Is it me or does all of this newfangled modern stuff feel so much more rife with guilty pleasure? Like maybe there should be some kind of commercial certification akin to “Presbyterian Approved” to assuage the moral uncertainty prior to purchase. Because I do wonder if I’m wrong to want a TV the size of a single bed. Or a self-driving car? Or a version of Netflix that has movies that I actually want to watch? Perhaps I should strike a deal and promise that, OK, I’ll recycle everything and give up Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. The crunchy ones. Well, give them up on weekdays. Because Sunday Funday and all that. Parameters in life, not limits.
All of this, of course, leads to Thanksgiving. Duh. Because, well, there is the culinary conundrum whether it’s all wrong to want to not cook on Thanksgiving. Is it ok to abandon the bird, so to speak? Or is cooking Thanksgiving dinner somewhere in the small print of the ten commandments? Or, rather, is it just super modern and cool and festive to have Thanksgiving at your house but have someone else cook the meal? To have turkey and gravy and stuffing and mashed potatoes and pumpkin pies and friends and not break a sweat — except maybe when you’re opening the Champagne. Honestly, WWJD?
I say embrace it. Put that Martha Stewart book down. The future is calling. And, really, it’s all good. Think of it. The perfect Thanksgiving just a few clicks away. Click-click-click-click. Easy as that. And honestly – don’t feel guilty. I know that your mother may have slaved over Thanksgiving dinner. Year after year. But she never had to deal with Spectrum customer service. Just sayin’.
Acme Thanksgiving To-Go. Just about everything that you need for a great meal. We will be taking orders through Thursday, November 21st with pick-up available the evening of the 27th and the morning of the 28th. The order form is found here. And once your order is placed, we will be back in touch to make sure that everything is exactly what you want. Thanksgiving dinner at home just got a serious upgrade. And once the meal is over maybe you’ll find some great movie on Netflix. Without Nicholas Cage. All I ask is that you let me know if you do.
Lest you forget, today is Acme’s annual Pie Day — where every slice of pie in the house is a nickel until we run out. Yes, five little pennies will get you a slice of heaven. Or you could stay at home and celebrate National Handbag Day. Completely your call.
Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
