This is what the text messages between me and Kate looked like this the day before Thanksgiving:
Lydia: Look at this, hooker. LOOK.
Lydia: Because they're actually slippers.
Lydia: But they're also shoes. The same way that Pajama Jeans are also pants.
Kate: And then you can watch me die.
Lydia: [evil laughing]
-- Two hours later --
Lydia: OH. DEAR. MAUDE. The Cap'n called me downstairs to help with something in the kitchen and this is what I found.
Kate: What the WHAT?
Lydia: That is a 23 lb turkey being brined in a Rubbermaid tub that I've used to store Hawk's old clothes and shoes. In the garage.
Lydia: I know.
Lydia: YES. I KNOW.
The good news is - no one died! And the turkey tasted delicious. Also? We'll be eating it for approximately always. Because 23 pounds of bird is a lot of freaking turkey and I don't waste food. Just ask my enormous ass.
The other good news is - you get to caption the photo!
Whoever gets their caption picked will get $50 donated in their name to a charity that helps feed or clothe people in need. Kate and I helped out at the Homeless Hypothermia shelter for a couple of hours last night and it was totally bad ass. We served food and hung out and I played several games of Yahtzee with some really cool ladies.
Submit your captions for this photo and we'll pick a winner in the next couple of days!
