Woo hoo, Thanksgiving in February. Is that a thing in which Crazy Eddie would have capitalized?
Thanksgiving in February!!!
Apparently, Thanksgiving was Carrie’s Mom’s favorite holiday, and she always made the holiday perfect with her amazing recipes. Whoa, whoa, whoa, I am, instantaneously, calling BS on this. No human (and by human, I mean woman) who cooks the entire Thanksgiving meal on their own actually ENJOYS Thanksgiving. I’m sorry, it is not possible. I am a CHEF and I hate Thanksgiving with a passion, and here is why: It’s a day of nothing but endless work for me. The men in the family, forget they have arms, and their eyeballs are glued to the TV. My sister, who was always super-helpful, now has two little kids to chase after because… the men in the family forget they have arms. So it’s all me. I even had a meltdown two years ago because everyone was being useless. This past year my father waited until he heard the last dish being put away before he will poked his head in to see if he could help…he wanted to get credit for helping without actually having to help.
Ok, back to Carrie…She is making out with George in Central Park.
As they are making out, Carrie is wondering if she should make cranberry sauce? George is like- whatever, just stop talking. She is distracted by Thanksgiving. Well… honestly, I am- constantly- distracted by tacos so I can relate. George would love to see Carrie in a “sexy apron.” He mentions he has never dated anyone who cooked anything before. Was that the single most douchey thing ever uttered? Carrie says, in truth, her Grandma will be doing the bulk of the cooking- she will, merely, be taking credit.
George says “You will be her sous chef?”
Carrie says “Her name is Helen.”
George replies “Not ‘Sue’ S-U-E.”
Why do they make Carrie so clueless? She lives in Connecticut- within a stones throw to NYC- it’s not like she’s a hoodrat from a back-hoods mountain town and drinks NeHi.
In the hallway at school, Mouse wonders if she will have to see Super Vixen Donna LaDonna and Sebastian spending Thanksgiving together at the club. Carrie tells them Sebastian is spending the holiday with his Mom- the one that ran away with the tennis pro. This reeks of Kelly Taylor attempting to spend every holiday with her Dad and he never shows up. Nevertheless, Carrie thinks it’s nice that Sebastian will spend the holiday with family. Mags will be spending Thanksgiving with Walt’s uptight family. The girls are surprised that Carrie is cooking- because she is a terrible cook, she burns microwave nachos.
Later, Carrie comes home after fighting the crowds at the grocery store.
Two bags?!?! WTF?
